Pre-arrangement Plans

Most people understand that life insurance is about peace of mind. The same is true of pre-planning your funeral arrangements.

 By taking care of the details today, you are giving your family a valuable gift — the knowledge that your funeral will perfectly reflect your wishes after you’ve gone. What’s more, like life insurance, you’ll take the financial worry of planning final arrangements  off their shoulders. By pre-paying, your family is also guaranteed that they will never be  asked to pay more, regardless of inflation.

The big decisions…

Since planning a funeral isn’t something most families face often, the biggest step in pre-planning is knowing when to start. The answer is simple. It’s never too early to pre-plan, particularly when your final arrangements are part of astute financial planning.  By making informed choices ahead of time, you can rest assured that, during a time of profound distress, your family is protected from difficult decisions.
