Here are the answers to some questions that you might have about prearrangement:

What is pre-arrangement?

Pre-arrangement is planning a funeral service before the need arises.

Service details include professional and staff service, use of facilities, equipment and motor vehicles.

Merchandize includes caskets, vaults or grave liners, urns, clothing and other specifics pertaining to the particular needs of each family.

Why pre-arrange?

Pre-arranging is an important step in overall estate planning. By pre-arranging you will:

  • Have the peace of mind that comes from knowing your family will be spared from having to make difficult decisions at a time of deep personal loss.
  • Guarantee funeral costs at today's price, ensuring no future fees will arise.
  • Protect life insurance and additional assets for uses other than funeral expenses.
  • Guarantee the quality of service that you feel is most appropriate for you and your family.

What do I need to ask when pre-arranging?

Pre-arranging allows you to take your time in deciding what is best for you and your family. The following are important questions to ask when pre-arranging:

  • If I pay today, are the fees for my funeral guaranteed?
  • Will my funds be handled by a reputable funding company?
  • If my death occurs in another city will funds cover a funeral in that city, without a transferal fee?
  • Will my family receive any excess funds that may be remaining once my funeral has been paid for?
