Benefits Of Planning Your Funeral While You're Still Alive
The notion of organizing a funeral is painful enough; few people want to do it while they are still alive, and most hope for long life. There are, however, several advantages to preplanning a funeral.
We constantly urge clients to explore this option at Blair Mazzarella Funeral Home. The majority of people who preplan their funeral sense relief above all else, secure in knowing that their family will carry out their wishes and that the funeral task will not burden them. The following are some of the most significant advantages of preplanning:
1. Monetary Aspect
Funeral service costs continue to grow each year. A $1,000 service from a few years in the past now costs between $2,000 and $3,000. That is why preplanning a funeral is prudent. You can lock in the present rate rather than risk your family paying a higher price in the future. This can alleviate their burden, enabling them to concentrate on their grief rather than on preparations.
2. Your Preferences
Some clients prefer cremation, while others prefer to be buried in a specific location. Everyone wishes to pick their final destination, which is only possible through planning. While you can communicate your choices to family members, they will follow your desires after your death. Preplanning guarantees that no one interferes with preparations, ensuring that everything is completed according to your specifications.
3. Simple Process
While preplanning a funeral may sound hard, it is relatively simple. Complete an online form, communicate your needs to the funeral director, and sign an agreement. That is all. A funeral director will assist or advise you as necessary with all the details you need about the services they offer, which ones are optional, and how.
