Make it easier for those you love®
We all make plans in advance every day of our lives. We schedule doctor appointments regularly. We save for vacations long before we take them. We buy auto insurance to protect our family in the event of accidents and health coverage for unexpected illnesses. We often carry life insurance intended to cover ongoing living expenses for the family in the event of an untimely death.
Equally important is discussing your funeral preferences with your family and setting aside funds for your final expenses.
The benefits of doing so include:
- Helps relieve your loved ones of the emotional and financial burdens in the future
- Provides peace of mind knowing your affairs are in order for your survivors
- Reflects your expressed wishes
- Designed to meet Medicaid/SSI requirements
- Offers the flexibility to change funeral homes should you move
- The death benefit is generally exempt from income tax liability
Peace of mind...today, more and more people recognize the emotional advantages of planning their funeral in advance.
Prepare for the unexpected
Most of us plan for the possible, the potential misfortunes of life that seldom actually happen.
Why not gain some peace of mind by planning for the inevitable - your final expenses? You’ll get the peace of mind that comes with planning ahead, and your family will be saved the financial burden when you’re gone. Last year alone, more than one million people planned and funded their final expenses ahead of time.
