Why Should I Plan Ahead?
When it comes to your final arrangements, shouldn’t you make the decisions? The arrangements you make will reflect your exact wishes and desires. Prearranging your own service will help to ease the burden of your loved ones. It will also alleviate any questions, problems, or differences, which can occur among family members.
Prepayment will protect you from the rising cost of prices, and it will not be a financial burden on your loved ones. When you plan ahead, you know that your wishes will be fulfilled.
A Family’s Peace of Mind
Preplanning allows you to make important decisions about cemetery arrangements with your family. Knowing that when a death occurs many of the decisions have already been made eases the emotional and financial burden for your loved ones.
Today’s Low Costs
Prearrangement allows you to pay for tomorrow’s goods and services at today’s cost. By locking in the cost today, and making decisions in a calm, measured environment; you will save money.
When you prepay for your cemetery arrangements, we place money in a trust fund to cover the future cost of goods and services selected, regardless of inflation and price increases.
When a death occurs, cemetery expenses must be paid at the time of the arrangements, which may place unexpected financial strain on family members. By planning ahead you are able to take advantage of our financing options with payment plans to fit your budget and spare your family from having to cover these expenses.
Protection From Nursing Home Costs
Unlike many other investments (including cash value and traditional life insurance) that you own, the dollars you place into a correctly structured preneed trust plan will not count as an asset if you enter a nursing home. It is exempt from government agencies, private agencies and taxation.
When you use our trust fund, your dollars are immediately available to pay cemetery costs. This eliminates the potential delay of services that may occur while waiting to verify life insurance benefits or secure funds for the arrangements. Your loved ones will not have to come up with significant cash or borrowed funds on short notice.
Dignity and Control
You help insure that your wishes are carried out with dignity and respect. Before your death you retain the right to change the merchandise, lot location or any of the many decisions you have made. At death, your family will be comforted, knowing they are honoring your wishes.
There’s No Better Time Than the Present
Let’s be honest. We really don’t know the number of our days on this Earth. Tomorrow has no guarantees. Do you know your death date? You can be sure, however, that you have life right now; and there is opportunity today to take care of your final arrangements for the many great reasons detailed above.
