Why Plan Ahead?

Help take the burden off your loved ones by making your end-of-life
decisions in advance, in a calm and thoughtful atmosphere.


If you're trying to be financially responsible and have your fiscal ducks all in a row, it might seem sensible to sign up for "pre-need" funeral insurance to (eventually) cover the cost of your funeral or that of a loved one.

Preneed life insurance is an insurance policy whose benefits cover the cost of the predetermined expenses of a funeral, cremation or burial. The expenses typically include standard funeral home services, funeral merchandise, church services and even burial services and merchandise. The purpose of preneed life insurance is to set aside funds for your funeral, before the need arises, thereby protecting your loved ones and your financial assets.

One way to plan in advance for the end of one's life is to sign a formal contract called a "preneed funeral plan." With this plan, money to pay for a funeral and/or burial is held in a trust, in an escrow account or paid through an insurance policy on the life of the person desiring the plan. Parts of or all of the funeral service and burial are designed in advance and pre-funded in advance and the family has little to do but show up.
