If you elect to pay for a funeral service in advance, your wishes are known to the family so that they don't spend money on things you did not want. You are essentially paying for a funeral service at today′s price, even though the need may not occur for many years. Through our pre-planning program, you can be assured that your money is safely deposited into a burial insurance policy and will be available at the time of need.
If you need nursing home care, medicaid or other monetary assistance in the future, your pre-funded service cannot be taken away from you. Yet if you move, your arrangements can move with you to the funeral home of your choice.
We can help you set up a pre-need funeral or cremation contract. It can be pre-funded through a burial life insurance policy or annuity. We offer you the option of setting up either a revocable or irrevocable pre-need contract. The term "revocability" refers to the pre-funding of your funeral. Pre-need contracts can be either "revocable" or "irrevocable."
A revocable contract can be cancelled or "un-funded" at any time, and the released funds can be used for any purpose. With insurance, you would be entitled to the cash value of the policy. An irrevocable contract must be used solely for the purpose of paying for funeral expenses. Most people choose to make their pre-funding irrevocable because they want to ensure that the money will be there to pay for their funeral in the future.
Having the Talk of a Lifetime can make the difference of a lifetime. It can help reacquaint us with our loved ones and help us get to know them in a new and different way. Finding a way to start talking with a loved one may be the most difficult part; however, we might find that once the conversation starts, it may be hard to stop. The Funeral and Memorial Information Council encourages you to take advantage of the following resources to help you and your loved ones Have the Talk of a Lifetime. Deep down, most of us want to know that we, in some way, made a difference in this world — that we mattered to someone, and that after we die, we will be fondly remembered by those who knew and cared for us. When grieving a death, memorialization – taking time to honor the life of a loved one in a meaningful way – and remembering the difference a loved one made in our lives can be an important step in the journey toward healing.
