Pre-planning Benefits
Provides peace of mind

Funeral pre-planning can give you peace of mind in knowing that your loved ones are taken care of after you're gone. You'll also have the satisfaction of knowing that everything is done the way you want it. 

Enables family to say goodbye

Some families find closure and comfort in saying goodbye to their loved ones, and pre-planning a funeral or cremation service can help them do that. By pre-planning, you'll relieve your surviving loved ones from having to make difficult funeral arrangements at the time of your death. They won't have to ponder or debate over various funeral options, which can be very stressful.

Funeral pre-planning allows you to choose the funeral home, cemetery, and type of service that's right for you and your family. It also gives you the opportunity to discuss your wishes with your loved ones so they know exactly what you want.

Saves money

One of the biggest benefits of pre-planning your own funeral is it saves you money.  Funeral homes often offer discounts for those who pre-plan, and by doing so you can avoid the high costs of funeral services. If you also pre-pay,  funeral costs won't increase as a result of inflation.

Personalized service

When you pre-plan, you can further customize the cremation or burial service to your preferences.  For example, you can choose the casket, and type of funeral or memorial service that best reflects your lifestyle. You can also make special requests such as music selections and decorations so you receive the funeral you want.

More time to grieve

A funeral pre-planning is a way to ease the burden on your family following death.  You can spare them from having to make funeral arrangements while they are grieving and during a time of emotional distress. When you have already taken care of funeral details, it also allows your loved ones more time and space to grieve so they can  begin to heal.

The funeral pre-planning process is also a way of expressing your love and concern for your family. Knowing that you have made all the funeral arrangements gives them one less worry during an already difficult time.

Everything will be done your way 

When you pre-plan, all aspects of the funeral will be done your way and in accordance with your personal beliefs. This means no one can add or remove elements in your funeral service, because you have already documented everything.

Gives you time to think

Funeral pre-planning allows you to take your time in determining funeral costs. You can also decide on a funeral plan that is appropriate for your budget, and not just what others think is best for you. The cost of funeral services varies from one funeral home to another so it’s important that you find funeral providers that offer funeral packages at reasonable prices.
