Why Pre-Plan?

Most of us plan ahead in life. We plan for our wedding, our children's education, family vacations and other significant expected life events. We also plan for the unexpected events of life by purchasing home, auto and medical insurance.

Understanding the benefits of pre-planning has prompted many to take steps to plan their own funeral arrangements.

Peace of Mind
Many who have undergone the emotional strain of arranging a funeral within hours of losing a loved one have made the choice to pre-plan their own funerals. Doing so lifts the burden from their loved ones by relieving decision-making pressure at a time of grief and emotional stress.

Personal Choice
Funeral arrangements are a deeply personal choice. Pre-planning provides you with the time needed to make practical, detailed decisions that reflect your standards, lifestyle, taste and budget.

Lower Costs
When you finalize your plan, you can be advised of the total cost of your arrangements. You do not have to pre-pay or pre-finance your plan, but doing so may protect you against escalating funeral prices. By locking in today's funeral costs and ensuring that the necessary funds are set aside, you relieve yourself of unnecessary future worry and your survivors of unexpected expenses.
