Pre-Arrangements

Pre-Arrangements


Pre-arranging a funeral can be beneficial, both for your family and your wallet. When you pre-plan, you have the opportunity to designate funeral and cemetery plans before the time comes. Primarily, this option takes a lot of the burden off your family, as the decisions have already been made. Not to mention, if you make plans ahead of time, you can be assured your funeral will be planned exactly as you prefer.

There are two ways to set up a pre-arrangement: you can devise your plans and have the funeral paid at the time of services, or you can set up a trust with the funeral home, which will guarantee today’s prices at the time of death.

Pre-arrangements can be flexible, depending on the circumstance. If you later decide to switch plans, say from burial to cremation, we can adjust the paperwork. However, if you’ve placed your money in an irrevocable trust, the money must be spent with the funeral home. This could be applied to a memorial luncheon, merchandise, or other add-on services.

If you move away, the money is transferable to any funeral home.

If you choose to make pre-arrangements and place the money in a revocable trust, you can cash the money out at any time and cancel your plans. However, if you have gone on Medicaid and the money was placed into an irrevocable trust, the money cannot be cashed out.
