How Do You Want to Be Remembered? Pre-planning Funerals

By January 20, 2012 October 2nd, 2018 Funeral, Life Insurance

How do you want to be remembered? With a solemn ceremony in a church, or a big crowded wake? Funerals are an important rite of passage for those left behind—and can come with big price tags. The National Funeral Directors Association estimates that the average funeral costs $6,500—and that’s not counting the cost of a burial plot or grave marker. For many families, that’s a huge payout.

The last thing you want your family worrying about during a difficult time is how they’re going to pay for a burial plot, a casket, an attorney to handle estate issues and other expenses that inevitably come at the end of life. But if you have a good insurance policy, you can relax, knowing that your final arrangements won’t be a burden.

You can also help your family by pre-planning aspects of your funeral. You may want to consider including in your will information about where you’d like to be buried (or cremation arrangements), any special music or requests for the ceremony, and other information that might make funeral planning easier for your family.

Make sure that you’re remembered the way you want to be—without putting any stress or strain on your family. Give us a call today and let us talk about how you can protect your family’s future with a life insurance policy.
