Addressing one’s mortality can be sobering. Pre-planning provides a way to move beyond anxiety towards clear, thoughtful decision-making. It is sensible for families to have a plan in place. When the time comes, they will experience the assurance of knowing each wish and final request is appropriately fulfilled.
What is Pre-Planning?
Pre-planning is the gift of freedom from worry, both emotional and financial. When done right, it offers clarity and assurance for the planner and gives peace-of-mind to families.
How Pre-Planning Works
Our experienced family service counselors gently guide you through the pre-planning process. Our counselors will educate you about the full range of choices and services available to you so that you are able to make the best, most informed, choices.
The following are the typical steps involved in pre-planning:
1. Select a type of burial estate
2. Choose specific cemetery property
3. Lock-in and freeze all committal fees
4. Select a bronze memorial
5. Arrange funeral service, make your wishes known
Once the pre-arrangements are completed, when a death occurs, one phone call puts everything into place. There is absolutely no guesswork about wishes and intentions.
Pre-planning provides the advantage of freezing costs at today’s prices. Families in the midst of the stress and sorrow of loss are in no position to make difficult personal and financial decisions. Pre-planning eliminates the emotional and financial burden from those you love.
It is important for family questions to be answered during the funeral arrangement process. Pre-planning together, among loved ones, results in a confident family decision.
Once a plan is in place and funded, the prices are locked-in (frozen) at their current levels. This means that you and your family are not subject to any applicable price increases in the future.
Pre-Planning allows comfortable, affordable, payments to be spread out over time. Whereas, time-of-need planning often requires payments for goods and services to be made in full.
