Funeral pre-planning isn’t a novel idea anymore and an increasing number of people are now opting for it. The concept of death doesn’t scare every person and many feel that just like they plan so many other things in life, they should also pre-plan their funeral. Many people have specific ideas about what they want their funeral to be like and feel that pre-planning gives them some amount of control over this aspect.

Why Pre- Plan Your Funeral?

But there are certain financial benefits to pre-planning your funeral and here we take a look at what these are:

  • Funeral pricing can increase over the years due to inflation. Something that cost $2000 today might just end up costing double that a couple of years down the track. But when you pre-plan your funeral, you don’t have to worry about inflation. The price that you pay when you book the service and sign the contract, gets locked-in and you save money on the service.
     
  • Funerals can be expensive and that means your family members have to bear the burden of those costs after your death. However, when you pre-plan and pre-pay, your family doesn’t have to pay a single penny. This can be a significant relief for your family, especially if they have modest means and they don’t have to dip into any of their savings.
     
  • Most funeral homes have payment plans that you can opt for instead of paying the entire amount at one go. If your death occurs before you are able to make the entire payment, your family can pay the balance amount and conduct the service as per your preferences.

There are many financial benefits to pre-planning a funeral and a well-established funeral home can help you with the process. Have any questions about cremation and related funeral services? Just contact us or give us a call (604) 888-9895. Arbutus Funeral Service will be happy to help.
