Cremation Preplanning

If someone were to ask you, “what’s the benefit of planning ahead?”, the simple answer is that “it helps prevent mistakes.” Therefore, many of us make plans in many aspects of our life. We plan for our wedding, our children’s education, family vacations, and other significant expected life events. Also we plan for unexpected life events by purchasing home, auto, and medical insurance.

So why don’t more people plan for their death? Obviously planning for your own death is morbid and does not fill you with positive emotions, but it remains very important and beneficial.

Benefits of Cremation Preplanning

1. Make Sure Your Wishes Are Adhered To

A prearranged cremation service ensures your family follows how you want to be handled when you die. First of all, you can explicitly state that you would like to be cremated instead of buried. Then you can specify if you would like a ceremony to honor your life and what that ceremony would look like and include. You can get very detailed with your instructions such as detailing where you would like your ashes scattered. Preplanning your cremation ultimately gives you control and power to make important decisions.

2. Remove Stress from Your Family

Trying to plan cremation and a funeral immediately after a loved one has died is very difficult. Family members are overcome with grief and are not necessarily thinking clearly. By cremation preplanning, you relieve your family of the burden of making these arrangements. This can greatly reduce their stress and can allow them to just focus on grieving and comforting each other.

Also it is common for family members to disagree on a loved one’s final arrangements. Clearly communicating your choice of cremation in your plans can quickly remove disputes. Funeral preplanning is an easy way of avoiding any infighting among the family.

3. More Payment Methods

Prearranging your cremation gives you many more payment options.

a) You can pay for your cremation service in advance, which is often referred to as prepaid cremation. Choosing this option will place your money into a trust where it can earn interest over time. This means when you pass away, your family could get a refund on the costs or have extra money to add something meaningful to the service.

b) You can take out an insurance policy. If you qualify, when you do die, the policy will be used to cover any of the funeral expenses or estate taxes.

c) You can pay over time. Most families pay for funeral costs at a lump sum after the cremation and funeral has concluded. Instead you can make smaller, incremental payments over time to start eating at the cost. In this instance, you can add these payments into your monthly budget.

4. Lock into a Price and Avoid Inflation

Inflation impacts every industry, but with a prepaid cremation plan you can lock into a price on the day you sign the contract and potentially avoid the impact of inflation.

5. Talk About It with Your Family

Preplanning your cremation service allows you to talk it over with your family. As much as your end-of-life plans are your decision, it can also be beneficial to get your family’s point of view. Planning a ceremony that allows your family to best cope with grief should be considered.
