We plan for our education, vacations, special events, insurance, and retirement. But sometimes people forget the most inevitable part of estate planning… the Funeral Arrangements. These days more and more people have realized that sensible estate planning consists of pre-arranging their Funeral Details.
Why Plan Ahead?
Pre-planning your final arrangements is simply a matter of taking the time to think about and write down your wishes. It’s a thoughtful caring gesture to those you love, and a way to let go of anxieties about the future. You’ll be more relaxed, knowing your plans are made and those you love aren’t left guessing ‘what it is you wanted’.
When you take the time to think about it, you’ll quickly realize that pre-planning is all about taking control and helping those you love. Nothing can take away the pain, but planning ahead will ease the burden.
By planning ahead, you:
- let your family and the funeral home know your wishes.
- can take the time to think it out together with your loved ones.
- relieve your family members of making very personal decisions at a very stressful time.
- receive peace-of-mind knowing things will be taken care of.
- help to protect your loved ones from the many decisions, details, and financial responsibilities that must be tended to at the time.
Does Pre-planning Require Pre-payment?
The answer is: No. You can choose to simply have your plan set down on paper, recording your information and funeral wishes on file with us, and leave it for your family to pay for your desired services at the time of your passing.
Or, you can protect you and your family from inflation by paying today’s costs and pre-funding your plan.
Pre-funding ensures your expenses will be covered when you need them to be, and your loved ones will not be left to cover them at the time. For funding a pre-arranged funeral, many plans are available and payments can be made over time or in one lump sum. When you choose to pre-fund your final arrangements, your money is put in a trust account or top-rated insurance program until your wishes are fulfilled. After your funeral is paid for in full, the price is guaranteed and you will never have to pay more for the items you have already paid for.
When you pre-plan with Rod Abrams Funeral Home, your plan is fully transportable. No matter where you reside at the time of your passing, your plan can be transferable to any funeral home you wish. As such plans made at other funeral homes may be transferred here.
With pre-payment, your expenses will be covered when you need them to be. That’s guaranteed.
