Why Should I Plan Ahead

It's a good feeling knowing you and your family will be cared for. Planning ahead proved you peace of mind that your personal wishes and known and protects your family during a difficult time.


One of the greatest benefits to planning ahead is the impact on your family. In planning your wishes ahead of time, you relieve your family from the guesswork of what you wanted. In a different time, of grief and stress, making decisions becomes even more difficult. Given time to consider it, you’ll quickly realize that pre-planning is all about ensuring that your wishes are known, so they can be acted upon when the time comes. Making the commitment to planning ahead:

- Is easy. There’s no health questionnaire or physical exam required. Absolutely everyone can make a pre-plan, and there is no waiting for return documents. The plan is completed, and put on file in our office.

- Relieves your family members of making very personal decisions on your behalf.

- Can protect your family from the ravages of inflation. Your expenses can be covered when you need them to be, through a pre-payment plan.

Does Pre-planning Require Pre-payment?

Does Pre-planning Require Pre-payment?

The simple answer is: No. You can set plan to paper by simply recording your wishes, and leave it for your family to pay for your desired services at the time of your passing.

Or, you can protect your family from that burden  by pre-funding your plan. This ensures your expenses will be covered when you need them to be.

When you choose to pre-fund your final arrangements, your money is put in a state-approved trust account or top-rated insurance company until required.
