Funeral planningAdvance funeral planning has become increasingly popular across the country. But what exactly is it and what are the financial and emotional benefits of it? Why is it important to consider and why should you choose Fares J. Radel?

What is It?

Advance funeral planning moves the decisions involving a loved one’s death from the period immediately following a death to a time that is more convenient and less stressful. Advance funeral planning can include virtually every detail and provide for complete pre-payment of the final services or it can be a basic outline of a person’s wishes.

The Benefits of Pre-Arranging Your Funeral

There are both emotional and financial benefits of advance planning your funeral. Financial benefits include:

  • Your family doesn’t have to worry about the expense associated with your funeral.
  • There are Medicaid spend down benefits when final expense funding is placed in an irrevocable trust.

The emotional benefits can also make the process well worth your time.

  • You are assured your wishes are clearly known and spelled out.
  • It can help avoid any conflicts with final services following your death.
  • It takes the burden of difficult decisions off of family members following your death.
  • It can prevent “emotional overspending” on funeral expenses.
  • You can make sure your family has the information important to you to include in your obituary.
  • You can decide if there are any particular charities you would like to benefit from any contributions in your name.
