Reasons to Consider Pre-Planning
Preplanning provides peace of mind for everyone involved. A carefully preplanned service can be most comforting to your family, as it spares them from having to face decisions that can be both emotionally and financially difficult at the time of death. It can give them lasting peace of mind to know they have acted in accordance with your wishes.
Making pre-arrangements can be as simple or as detailed as you wish. You can make the selection of the services, casket, music, etc. or simply record the information that will be needed for legal forms and other paperwork.
Another reason to preplan is to ensure that your family will receive all of the benefits they are entitled to receive. It is important that all of your personal records, including bank account numbers, investment information, insurance policy numbers, and location of important papers be accessible to your family in the event of a death. All of this and your personal wishes for your funeral can be recorded ahead of time. This ensures that the protection you worked and planned for will be received by your beneficiaries when they need it most.
Although not required when making pre-arrangements, most people choose to set aside funds that will cover their future funeral and final expenses.
