Funeral services are an expense. To be perfectly honest, funeral services are usually a large expense, and without preparation, loved ones can be surprised by the price tag of everything involved.
Fortunately, there are ways to you and your loved ones manage the finances of your funeral services. By pre-planning you (or a loved one’s) funeral services, you can experience significant savings. Yes, some deaths are sudden and unexpected, especially those that happen to children or healthy, young adults, so preparation may not occur; however, if you or a loved one has entered your later years in life or are extremely sick, it’s in your best interest to preplan the services.
These days, many funeral homes work with people and families to preplan funeral services, cremation services, and memorials. At Evergreen Cemetery, Funeral Home & Crematory , we work with people to preplan there services. Preplanning allows you to make your own decisions on the services will include, give you more financial options, and take away some financial responsibility and decision making from family members once you’ve passed.
Here we’ve included some financial benefits to preplanning your funeral in advance:
- As years pass, funeral services costs increase. If you plan your services now, your services are based on current rates, which can save you and your family thousands of dollars.
- Preplanning allows you to plan for exactly what you want without spending money too much or not enough. You choose and control the budget when planning ahead. You don’t have to worry about family members spending too much or forgetting to purchase something.
- When planning ahead, you can often work with a funeral home to create a payment plan where you owe in installments rather than pay a large lump sum.
You can work with the funeral director and staff to find different ways you can financial plan and get the best deal while planning your services. Every individual’s financial situation is different, and our team at Evergreen want to work with you to help you plan the funeral services you want without getting into financial troubles. We look forward to helping you with a financial plan.
