Often times in our lives, we are provided information about services, products and opportunities that can be of great benefit to us, things that would fall into the category of "a good thing to do." But because some opportunities take time to research, time to prepare for, time to think about or because they cost money, we put them on the back burner. We can even become well informed about it, believe it is "a good thing to do," and come up with the money, but still put it off until later.
Sooner than we think, later comes around and we find ourselves saying, I wish I had made that investment, bought that house, taken that job, accepted that scholarship, bought the long term care insurance, started that savings, etc . . . Are you one of those people who have a history of letting good opportunities pass you by?
Well, if you haven't already heard, Pre-Need Funeral Planning is "a good thing to do." It is an opportunity to bless your family by making decisions about your funeral and paying for it in advance.
Then, when you step out of the picture permanently, your family will be relieved to know that your final affairs are taken care of. This lifts a tremendous burden, helps avoid conflicts, lessens strife, saves money, etc . . .
Anyone who has made funeral arrangements upon the death of a loved one, can speak to the anxiety and stress that accompanies the task. Planning in advance can lower that stress considerably. Families have a problem if they have no life insurance, because most funeral homes ask for payment in full prior to the funeral service. The good news is that Pre-Need Funeral Plans are available that you can pay for monthly, over 3, 5 or 10 years. These plans are available through A rated companies like Homesteaders Life Co., Forethought Life Insurance Co., and others. You can pre-plan for yourself or for a relative that you would be responsible for, if they were to pass away. These plans have guarantees that can lead to substantial savings.
Pre-Need Funeral Planning is "a good thing to do." You have been informed. Don't put it off or someone you love will wish you hadn't.
