When To Make Plans


WHEN IS THE BEST TIME TO PRE-PLAN YOUR FUNERAL?.

Many families choose to prearrange a funeral as a way of preparing to go on Medicaid.  Others simply want the peace of mind that comes with having things planned out.  Our staff are experts in helping you make those plans.  Usually people have a lot of questions and we are here to help.  In a recent survey, these were the most common reasons people gave for prearranging their own funerals.  

  1. Lets your wishes be known.
  2. Reduces stress for friends and family at an already emotional time.
  3. Can provide a hedge against inflation, depending on the type of plan.  
  4. Shows you care.
  5. Relieves your loved ones of the financial responsibility.

By taking time now to collect information and calmly making choices related to your own funeral arrangements, you'll be protecting your family against the stress of having to make these decisions at a time of emotional difficulty. By planning in advance, you can carefully choose the details of your arrangements and relieve your family of stressful decisions at the time of need.  At Speaks you can begin the process online. Having a plan in place, even if it is unfunded, is a gift of love.
