Three Benefits of Funeral Pre-Planning
Though it may be difficult to consider, you may benefit from thinking about how you would like your body to be handled after you pass away. This helps to ensure your funeral services are handled the way you want and also helps to alleviate loved ones’ stresses. Here are a few of the reasons why you should consider funeral pre-planning:
Have Things Your Way Regardless of whether you wish to be buried or cremated, planning your funeral services in advance gives you the freedom to choose how you want your services handled. You can make as few or as many specific decisions as you would like—either way, you can ensure that your funeral services are the way you want them to be.
Spare Your Loved Ones Emotional Stress Pre-planning your funeral spares your loved ones the stress and uncertainty that come with making critical and permanent decisions at a time of emotional duress. Even if you do not make comprehensive plans for your funeral, your few decisions could go a long way toward helping to alleviate your loved ones stresses. Additionally, your loved ones will not be left wondering whether the decisions they make are in line with your wishes.
Provide Financial Certainty When you pre-plan your funeral, you typically have the option of paying for it in advance. If you are in a position to cover your own funeral expenses, you will spare your loved ones another burden and feel even more at ease about what will happen to you after you pass.
