Information Regarding Pre-Planning

Pre-Need

If you find yourself hesitant to pre-arrange your funeral, even with the best of intentions, you are not alone. We all know intellectually that death is inevitable, but planning for and discussing it can be surprisingly difficult. Would it be better in your situation to plan ahead, calmly and sensibly, when you are in a non-emotional mental and physical state, when you have full ability to reason, and when you are able to discuss arrangements with your family? By prearranging your funeral you can:
 
  • Make your wishes known
  • Involve your family in making these difficult decisions with you
  • Relieve your loved ones of the financial responsibility
 
Making Your Wishes Known
 
Making funeral arrangements at the time of loss is extremely difficult for those left behind. One of the most caring, loving things you can do for your family is to leave detailed information that guides them to create a funeral service and personal tribute that matches your wishes.
 
Pre-arranging ensures that your family and funeral director know exactly what kind of funeral you want. At the time of death, families take comfort simply from knowing their loved one’s funeral reflects his or her wishes.
 
When the funeral, and sometimes even payment, has been arranged in advance, most of the decisions have been made, sparing uncertainty and confusion at a time when emotional stress may make decisions difficult.

 
Involving Your Family
 
When pre-arranging their funerals, some people find it helpful to involve other members of the family. Involving them can offer these benefits:
 
  • It can provide an outside perspective on the funeral decisions that are being made.
  • Your family will be carrying out the decisions that are made as part of the pre-arrangement. They will have a much clearer understanding of your desires, wishes, and the reasons for these, if they are part of the process.
  • It enables family members to understand what financial arrangements have been made, where the funds are deposited, and what the funds are to cover (as well as items not covered by the deposited funds).
  • Sometimes older individuals don’t understand all of the legal and financial issues involved in the pre-arrangement contract, but are afraid to ask questions. A family member involved in the process is much more likely to ask important questions and understand the arrangements that have been made when it comes time to honor the pre-arrangement.
