Why plan ahead? 

Rather than leaving your funeral arrangements in the hands of your family after you pass, you can plan your own services in advance. This ensures that those you love aren’t burdened by the stress and confusion of making rushed funeral arrangements while grieving. Planning your funeral ahead of time provides you with peace of mind knowing your wishes will be understood and fulfilled.

What are the benefits of planning ahead?

Take control of your final wishes

  • When you leave planning to others, they have to guess what you would have wanted.
  • Planning ahead ensures that your legacy is in your hands.
  • Take your time considering what is important to you and how you would like to be remembered.
  • When the time comes, your loved ones will have peace knowing your funeral perfectly honors you - because you made every decision. 

Save your family from financial and emotional stress

  • Organizing your funeral in advance means you are also able to secure a prepayment plan that works with your budget, protecting your family from unforeseen financial costs.
  • Purchasing a prearrangement plan spares your family from making large financial and emotional decisions while grieving your loss and allows them to focus on what truly matters: celebrating your life. 

Protect your family from logistical difficulties

  • If you pass while outside of your hometown, bringing you home can be costly for your family. 
  • When planning ahead, you have the option to purchase Out of Area Protection to spare your family from the stress of coordinating your return.
