3 Reasons to Pre-Arrange Your Funeral

January 28th, 2020

No one wants to think about saying their final goodbye or make time to compare Philadelphia crematories for a loved one who is nearing the end of life. However, pre-planning a funeral or cremation can make things a little easier on both yourself and your loved ones. Let’s take a look at some of the benefits of pre-arranging your funeral.

  • Pre-arrangements make your loved ones’ jobs easier. If you don’t have a will that establishes your final wishes, your surviving loved ones will have some very difficult decisions to make on their own. For example, do you want to be buried or cremated? Should you have an open or closed casket? Where should you be buried? By pre-planning your funeral, you answer these questions for your loved ones.
  • Pre-arrangements give your family more time to process their loss. There are few things harder to face in life than the death of a loved one. Unfortunately, the truth is that the passing of a loved one also often leaves families with a ton of work on their plate making final arrangements for their loved one. When you pre-arrange your funeral, you give your family members more time to process their loss and handle the wide range of emotions they’re feeling without scrambling for money or arrangements.
  • Pre-arrangements alleviate financial responsibility. When you pre-arrange your funeral, you can ensure that you’ll completely cover the cost of the burial through your savings or your estate. This leaves you with the peace-of-mind that comes along with knowing that your family won’t go into debt after you pass on.
