One way to take responsibility for your future is through sound financial planning. You've done everything from making a will to investing for retirement. But there's one aspect of financial planning that many people forget: pre-arranging your funeral.
No one likes to think about it, but planning and funding your funeral makes a lot of financial sense. Here's why:
*Pre-arranging allows you to lock in at today's prices so your decisions are protected against inflation.
That means that when you pre-arrange and pre-fund services at our current prices, no matter what happens in the future, you're family will not pay more.
*Pre-arranging provides the family the opportunity to make wise decisions at a time when they are better prepared to do so.
This provides peace of mind for everyone involved and prevents families from overspending at the time of need.
*You can save your estate or family hundreds of dollars on funeral expenses by pre-funding instead of paying later.
*Pre-arranging allows you to plan your funeral so your wishes are observed and saves others from the stress of making funeral arrangements and worrying about the finances during a very emotional period.
*By pre-funding your final expenses, the funds are placed in an "Irrevocable Burial Trust" which is not considered part of your estate when applying for Medicaid.
