Benefits of Funeral Pre-Planning

There are many benefits to funeral pre-planning. Here are the top ten reasons why you should consider making your funeral arrangements ahead of time:

  1. There will be fewer opportunities for argument and indecision about your funeral arrangements among family members after you're gone.
  2. Your family will never have to worry about doing the wrong thing when finalizing your funeral arrangements. You will have told them exactly what you want.
  3. No mistakes and no oversights. After you're gone, everything will be done your way.
  4. After you are finished with the funeral pre-planning process, you will have peace of mind knowing that we have made note of every detail.
  5. After your death, no one can make any decisions you wouldn't want.
  6. Funeral pre-planning is the responsible thing to do. It removes the burden from family members.
  7. You can make complex decisions ahead of time when you have the time to think things through.
  8. Funeral pre-planning can involve pre-payment. This can eliminate any future financial stress for your family. Paying in advance for pre-need funerals allows you to pay the current amount rather than leaving your family with an inflated price in the future.
  9. Funeral pre-planning will give you a firm understanding of the reality of death.
  10. You will receive the arrangements you want.
