Not many people feel that they need to pre-plan their funeral and most aren’t comfortable with the process. This is especially true if they are hale and hearty and death is one of the things that’s farthest from their minds. However, there are a number of benefits to pre-planning your funeral.

We at Franklin H. Rainear, Jr. have helped many clients understand what is involved in the process and have assisted with planning their funeral in advance. Take a look at why it is a good idea to pre-plan your funeral:

1. Less Stress For Your Loved One

When someone passes the family goes through stages of shock and grief. Those that are closest to the person undergo a significant amount of stress. If they have to plan the funeral and organize the service, that can only add to this stress. In comparison, if you have preplanned your funeral, your family members only need to contact the respective funeral home. The funeral director there will manage all the nitty-grittys, so your family can focus on the other things they need to.

2. Your Funeral, Your Way

A pre-planned funeral will be conducted as for your wishes. For instance, if you choose to be cremated rather than buried, the funeral home will ensure that this instruction is followed without any question. There are times when family members have different ideas about how the funeral needs to be conducted. However, your beliefs and opinions will have to be honored when you have pre-planned your funeral.

3. No financial Burden On Your Family

It isn’t uncommon for funeral expenses to rise over time. When you pre-plan your funeral and pay for in advance, it helps save your family some money. The amount you pay would be based on the agreement that you have with the funeral home, and your family doesn’t have to pay anything at that point in time.
