NEW YEAR, NEW RESOLUTION, BETTER PLANNING
It’s a new year and many people are making their resolutions and setting their goals for the year. One thing you may not have considered is taking an hour of your time to discuss end of life care. No one wants to think about it however it’s a great relief to know that if something were to happen your family would be in good hands.
PRE-ARRANGEMENTS DOESN’T NECESSARILY MEAN SPENDING MONEY NOW
One hour of your time can take care of gathering the information your family would need to make sure your wishes are followed. Pre-arrangements doesn’t necessarily mean paying for a funeral upfront. After the holidays I am sure no one is eager to spend more money.
GATHERING INFORMATION SO YOUR FAMILY DOESN’T HAVE TO
When the time comes your family will be confronted with having to gather a lot of information to handle your affairs. They will also have to make decisions on what your wishes might have been. Seldom do people discuss these things with their families because it’s a hard topic to discuss. A pre-arrangement consultation helps to give you all the options, a guide to what information will be needed, and a place to write this information down in an organized planning book we provide for free.
AT A TIME OF GRIEVING, ONE CALL CAN MAKE THE DIFFERENCE
When your wishes are written down and on file then your passing is made easier on your family. One call upon your passing to the funeral home will allow the director to have all your information already in writing so your family doesn’t have to spend several hours finding all the information they need to take care of your final arrangements. If you have taken the time to pre-fund your funeral through an affordable monthly plan then your family simply reviews your selections and signs with all monetary matters taken care of.
UNLIKE A LIFE INSURANCE POLICY OUR PLANS DELIVER
Life insurance plans should be for the families use to help cushion them with your sudden passing. They shouldn’t have to be used to pay for final expenses. The future is now and final expense plans have evolved to suit your needs to a T. Years ago funeral homes would put your money in a trust and when you passed whatever was in the trust would be used to cover the costs. Families sometimes would have to come up with extra funds when the accounts didn’t have enough in them.
Today our plans are backed by an insurance plan that covers the ENTIRE cost of your guaranteed funeral statement even if you’ve only made a few premium payments (and answered no to the one health question). Once you have paid your policy up then it remains in good standing for as long as you live. Our policies are portable and can be used at any funeral home in America in case you move to a new area.
