Pre-Planning Provides Peace of Mind
Today more than ever, people understand the wisdom of planning ahead by taking out insurance policies, setting aside savings, and making out a will. Advance memorial planning for a memorial is no different. In each case, it’s the wisdom of planning now to make sure the future won’t be so uncertain.
By pre-planning your memorial, you relieve your family of having to make important financial decisions during a period of great stress and grief.
When a family member passes, it can be a stressful process for families. Purchasing a memorial pre-need ensures that you will be remembered in the way you see fit, and also removes a burden from your family members. Making your decision before the time of need will afford you the consideration of the many available options.
Reasons To Pre-Plan Your Memorial
1. A memorial should be a joint decision.
As husband and wife, you’ve shared your lives. You’ve made important decisions together. Since a memorial is the most enduring thing you will ever purchase, it should be a joint decision too. Yet all too often, couples and families put it off.
2. It completes your estate planning.
Most people realize the importance of estate planning. What fewer realize is that estate planning isn’t complete without memorial planning. As a result, the surviving spouse is often left with the burden of choosing and paying for a memorial. By choosing your memorial now, you can avoid this stressful situation.
3. The choice will reflect your wishes.
Your memorial tells a story that reflects your lives, your interests, your beliefs, and your accomplishments.
4. Your insurance will fulfill it’s intended purpose.
If you purchase a memorial now your estate, savings, and insurance funds can all go toward their intended purpose: providing for your loved ones left behind.
5. No decisions during stressful times.
At times of grief and loss, it can be very difficult to make important decisions. Why place even more stress on your family?
6. No matter what, memorialization will be assured.
No one can predict the future. Financial troubles can delay memorial purchases by families, sometimes indefinitely. Disagreements can have the same effect. Pre-purchase is your protection against these uncertainties - your guarantee that your memorial will happen as you want it to.
7. Several interest-free financing options available to make the preneed choice an easy choice.
