What Does Pre-Need Mean?
For the same reasons you write a will, make retirement plans, or buy life insurance, people feel that it is a good idea to plan for the future and make their funeral arrangements.
Peace of Mind
At the time of an actual funeral most decisions need to be made within a few hours. By pre-planning, you can take your time and make the decisions in an unhurried and thoughtful way.
You Can Save Money
You can select the type of service you would like and how much you would like to spend. By paying for a service now, you can protect your assets from future unexpected expenses and may qualify for Medicaid or SSI benefits.
Your Personal Touch
Many people have very specific ideas of how they would like their service to be conducted. Many have personal hobbies or interests that they would like incorporated into the service such as a quilt display, fishing gear, or favorite family photos. Many people have a special poem or bible verse they would like read or a favorite song played. Making a service that is a personal tribute is a lasting memory for the survivors and helps the grief process.
