Why Prepaid Funeral Plan

If you are starting to feel overwhelmed with the idea of pre-planning your memorial service, think how your loved ones will feel when they have to make those decisions. Moreover, pre-planning does not have to be complicated process. It can be an informal written statement of your desires or a legal Funeral Planning Declaration.  Here are some reasons why pre-planning makes good sense.

Who wouldn’t want to leave that precious last gift for their loved ones? Take time now to make your preferences known or make the actual arrangements.

Avoid overspending. When you pre-plan, you choose the appropriate spending level. Your loved ones may not consider the cost when they are making quick decisions at a time when they can barely think. Or, they might mistakenly believe the amount spent equates to the amount of respect and love they have for you. Either scenario can cause overspending.

Specify detailed preferences. You and your loved ones may find peace in knowing that your final wishes will be carried out. Things to consider include: burial or cremation, your attire, the location, service participants, music, readings, flowers, photographs. You may think this level of detail is unnecessary, but if you do not specify your wishes, someone else will make these decisions. Planning all the small details now will mean your family wont have to at a stressful time.
