Thinking about your own funeral leaves most people feeling a little uneasy, but more adults are finding that planning their own service offers great emotional and even financial security for them and their families. With preplanning, families find comfort in knowing that the funeral reflects what their loved one wanted. It also gives them peace of mind to not have to make important decisions at a stressful time.
The benefits of prefunding your funeral can be financially benficial and neccessary especially in Medicaid/SSI cases. Upon the death of the beneficiary, Fullerton Funeral Home, Inc., guarantees that all services and merchandise (Excluding the cash advance items) will be provided at prices not to exceed the total amount plus accrued interest, provided the plan amount is fully funded at the time of death. Families also have the option of paying for their prefund funeral over time whether arranging a payment plan or just contributing over time as you please.
When considering prearranging, please call us. One of our experienced and compassionate funeral directors can walk you through the prearrangement process. We are strong advocates of prearranging for everyone.
Once you've made your prearrangements, keep a copy of your plan and any pertinent paperwork in a safe place. Also, inform a close friend or relative what arrangements you have made and where the information may be found.
If you choose, there are several ways to prepay for your funeral that can offer you financial benefits. However, prepaying is not required, but an option that many individuals find helpful.
If you feel prepaying is wise for you, then be sure to go over all available options with one of our funeral directors. Remember, like with any contract, ask any and all questions you may have regarding your preneed plan before you sign an agreement.
