When is the Best Time to Pre-Plan Your Funeral?
The best time to begin making your prearrangements is now, while you're thinking about it. While some people in their 40's and 50's may think it's too early to preplan, people who do say that prearranging their funerals is smart financial planning and gives them added peace of mind knowing they aren't leaving this burden to family members. Since anyone 18 or over can make prearrangements, it's never too soon. The sooner you start, the greater benefit you reap! You have far more time to accumulate interest, which then can go to offset price increases due to inflation, with the possibility of therefore cutting your actual outlay of money in half. By taking time now to collect cost information, and calmly making choices related to your own funeral arrangements, you'll be protecting your family against the stress of having to make these decisions at a time of extreme emotional stress. This way you can carefully choose specific items you want and need, and start paying for them now. We use The PrePlanSM, a New York Trust which allows families to fund their funerals in advance.
Common Reasons for Prearranging Funerals:
Today, more individuals and families are making the decision to prearrange their funerals than ever before. Because of the factors such as inflation, fewer extended family members living close by, and other changes in our society, planning your own funeral can make a lot of sense. In a recent survey, these were the most common reasons people gave for prearranging their own funerals:
Lets your wishes be known.
Reduces stress for friends and family at an already emotional time.
Let's you make choices for yourself, and let's your wishes be known to your family, to relieve them of the stress of second guessing, and the possible conflicts it can cause.
Shows you care.
Relieves your loved ones of the financial responsibility.
Peace of mind.....priceless!
