Not everyone thinks of planning their funeral when they are still alive, but this trend is now catching on. We get quite a few inquiries about what preplanning a funeral involves and whether there actually are any benefits to it. The fact is there are a number of advantages to pre-planning a funeral and here we take a look at what these are:

  • After your demise, your family has to manage all the arrangements for the service, the burial or cremation. In addition, they have to pay for all of these too. When you plan for your funeral you also pay for it in advance. This takes the financial burden of paying for your funeral, off your family’s shoulders.
  • Prepaying and pre-planning your funeral means you get to choose exactly how the service would be conducted. So if you have a specific kind of music that you want played at your funeral service or want a celebration of life etc. all of these requirements can be mentioned in the plans. The service will run exactly as you want it to be.
  • Funeral costs keep increasing each year. But when you pre-plan and pre-pay for your funeral, the price gets locked-in. Even if there is a price increase due to inflation in the future, that won’t affect you in any way. Neither you nor your family would need to pay anything more than what was mentioned in your agreement.

As you can see, there are a number of benefits to planning your funeral when you’re still alive. But it's important that you organize this with a well-established funeral home that would be able to provide you the solutions you need.
