|Question #1||What advantages are there to pre-paying?|
|Answer:||- Your loved ones will be relieved of burden at a difficult time.|
- The funeral will reflect your expressed wishes.
- The funeral will not be a financial strain on your family.
- Your funeral expenses will be protected from inflation.
|Question #2||Who should prearrange their funeral?|
|Answer:||Everyone. Death can strike the young and the old, therefore it is equally important to have our funeral arrangements preferences planned and registered as it is to have life insurance and a will made up.|
|Question #3||Should I discuss my arrangements with my loved ones?|
|Answer:||It is very difficult for most people to discuss their funeral plans with their loved ones, but at the time of death the family will appreciate the fact that these discussions were held and decisions were made. Remember the funeral is for the living, therefore your loved ones should be included in your decisions.|
|Question #4||What if I don't know what I want?|
|Answer:||One of our funeral professionals will explain all the services and options available. During this counseling session, many people discover services and options they never knew existed. With full information made available in a relaxed, unpressured manner, you'll probably find that you can make better informed decisions.|
|Question #5||Are there different pre-paying programs?|
|Answer:||Yes, there are many programs and we will help you select the one that is most beneficial for you.|
|Question #6||Wouldn't I be better off to invest the money myself?|
|Answer:||Invested money earns dividends or interest upon which income taxes must be paid. And there's no guarantee that the investment would keep pace with increasing funeral costs. With a pre-paid funeral program, you have the benefit of knowing all your plans are made, and your loved ones need only make one phone call to fulfill your funeral arrangements. With a funeral plan, you have the assurance that there will be money to cover future costs, whenever the need arises, and you pay no tax on the increasing death benefit.|
