Why Pre-Arrange or Pre-Plan Funerals in Advance?
During our lives we plan for many
situations: education, having a family, vacations, weddings and especially
our retirement. However, many of us neglect to plan our funeral as it is
a realization of our own mortality. We purchase
insurance to help us in case of accident, earthquake, fire and flood. We
should also consider the preplanning of our funeral service as it not only
lets our survivors know our wishes, but it will also lessen the inevitable
stress that can accompany funeral arrangements.
The benefits of advance funeral planning
. . .
- You can make rational and logical decisions
at an unemotional time.
- You can obtain peace of mind by making
your wishes known and assuring theat they will be carried out
- Your funeral will not be a financial
or emotional burden on your family.
- Your prepaid services can serve as
a tax shelter.
"I couldn't believe how much
easier it was on us when we found out that Mom had looked after her funeral
arrangements in advance."
- Mrs. K. Carlson
If funerals services are paid for in advance,
the funds are placed in a funeral insurance certificate.
The benefits of pre-funding funeral
services . . .
- The funeral costs are guaranteed
at today's prices, eliminating inflation.
- The payment can be made
in a single payment or monthly installments may be possible.
- The funeral insurance certificate
can be transferred to any funeral home in the world. Most pre-funded funeral
plans are not 100% transferred.
- Funeral homes which use
trust accounts, term deposits or annuities are allowed to keep up to 20%
of the principle and interest for administration.With our plan, 100% is
transferred to any funeral provider.
- The full amount of the funeral
is paid if an accidental death occurs during a payment plan.
- The funds are still protected,
in the event that the selected funeral home is no longer in business, and
can be assigned to any other funeral home.

and a monument or memorial marker.
