Benefits of Pre-Planning
There are almost more benefits to funeral pre-planning than we can count. Here are just a few:
You Can Choose the Way You'll be Remembered
Have you given any thought as to how you want to be remembered? Maybe you had a long career in the military that you'd like to celebrate. Maybe you love animals and would like to encourage donations in your memory to your local humane society. When you make funeral pre-arrangements, you put your wishes on paper so that your loved ones will know exactly how to celebrate your life and honor your memory.
You’ll Make it Easier on Your Loved Ones
Did you know that there are more than 70 details that need to be tended to in the first 24 hours after a death? Are your loved ones ready for all that responsibility?
When you pre-arrange, you make those first 24 hours easier for your loved ones. You can also save them money. The stress of making last-minute funeral arrangements often causes people to make unnecessary purchases. By taking care of the arrangements yourself, you free them from spending more than they need too.
You Can Protect Yourself and Your Family from Rising Funeral Costs
Like most things, funeral costs tend to rise every year. That means that a funeral today will probably cost less than the same funeral three or four years from now. Paying towards your funeral now can save you and your loved ones money. Not only do you have the option to pay over time, you earn interest on the money you set aside.

You Are In Charge Now and You Decide Who Will Be In Charge Later
You have the option of making as many (or as little) decisions and selections as you choose. And you may make changes throughout your life whenever you choose. Additionally, you can formally and legally designate the person(s) to be in charge of carrying out your wishes upon your death, so as to avoid any confusion or legal problems later.
You’ll Empower Your Family
They will know exactly what needs to be done. That’s because you’ve taken all of the guess work out of planning your funeral. When you pre-arrange your funeral, everyone benefits. You know that your wishes will be carried out and your loved ones know exactly how to honor you.
