Why Pre-plan my funeral?
The people who must arrange for a funeral often have little or no warning. They may be uncertain and unprepared to make decisions in the midst of their grief. By making your wishes known, you help your loved ones to carry them out. By making your requests flexible, you help your survivors incorporate your wishes in arrangements that fulfill their own emotional needs. Making funeral plans in advance helps your family through their grief, ensures that your funeral and memorials will reflect your wishes, and allows you to set aside funds so that your family will not face a financial burden.
How do you pre-plan?
Take time now to think about the questions that arise at the time of a death.Where will the services or ceremonies be held? Religious or non-religious ceremony? What about music, or special readings? How do you want your family and friends to celebrate your life and mark your passing? These online forms and lists provide a good starting place and guidance, but they don't do it all. Talking about your thoughts and plans with a funeral director will help you understand how the information is used and what is needed for a complete plan.
Your funeral pre-planning information should be filed with the funeral home so that it can be easily located and followed in the event of your death.
Making funeral arrangements in advance is one of the easiest ways to help your loved ones avoid financial and emotional stress. It is also away for you to take part in the way you want to be remembered. You’ll be able to plan exactly how you want the service, from choosing your own casket, monument, and final resting place to selecting the music you want played.
Setting aside money in a funeral trust to be used towards your funeral expenses will insure your family that funds will always be available at the time of need.
