About Preplanning

Taking the time to arrange your funeral now leaves one less thing your loved ones will need to worry about once you’ve passed. We are here to help you every step of the way.

 


 

While people spend months planning events like weddings and trips, few think about the one event that is certain to happen: their funeral. While most people do not want to think about their own mortality, the time to preplan your funeral is now. The primary advantage of pre-arranging your funeral is to relieve the burden on your loved ones in an emotional time, and to ensure your funeral is carried out according to your wishes, eliminating the task of second-guessing what you would have wanted. Preplanning and prepaying your funeral is one of the most thoughtful gifts you can give to your family.



Prepayment Options

Prepaying for your funeral reduces stress and financial burden on your loved ones after your passing. We can co-ordinate a payment plan that suits your needs. Options include a single payment plan, to monthly bank account withdrawals. By prepaying your funeral, you ease the financial impact on your family. Prepayment also protects you and your family, from inflation, and the growth is non-taxable. Depending on your region, if your funeral costs less than the amount you have put aside, those funds will be refunded back to your beneficiaries. For more information on what is applicable in your region, simply speak to your funeral director. Each year thousands of people decide to preplan and prepay for their funeral. These plans are designed to be flexible and to accommodate the many changes that often occur in people’s lives.



What you can do in advance...

  • Decide on Burial or Cremation and your casket or urn type.
  • Pick what type of service you want (religious, military, non-traditional).
  • Choose which funeral home to use..
  • Designate your pallbearers, pick any music or readings you want at your service.



Benefits of Preplanning

  • Between 70 and 75 decisions are made within the first 24-48 hours of death. It’s difficult to think rationally while making so many decisions within days of losing someone. Preplanning gives yourself, family, and friends peace of mind.
  • It’s easy. Anyone can do it, and you can change your mind at any time.
