Pre-planning your final arrangements is simply a matter of taking the time to think about, and to write down, your desires. It’s a thoughtful gesture to those you love, and a way to let go of anxieties about the future. You’ll be more relaxed, knowing your plans are made and in the hands of reliable friends or family.
Communicating your wishes
When you take the time to think about it, you’ll quickly realize that pre-planning is all about taking control. Pre-planning your final arrangements:
- relieves your family members of making very personal decisions at the time of need.
- lets your family know your wishes. The wishes are recommended to be placed on file with your funeral professional.
- opportunity to protect you and your family from the effects of inflation. Simply choose from one of the state approved funding options that include affordable payment terms.
- your funeral professional at Emerald Coast Funeral Home will provide to you a planning session at your home or business at no charge.
Does Pre-planning Require Pre-payment?
A one word answer to that question: no. You can choose to set plan to paper, simply recording your wishes, and leave it for your family to pay for your desired services at the time of your passing.
Or, you can protect you and your family from the ravages of inflation by pre-funding your plan. This ensures your guaranteed expenses will be covered when you need them to be.
When you choose to pre-fund your final arrangements, your money is put in a state-approved funding option until required. After your funeral is paid for in full you will never have to pay more for the guaranteed items you listed on your contract.
Another point we’d like to stress: When you pre-plan with Emerald Coast Funeral Home, your plan will go where you go. No matter where you reside at the time of your passing, no matter what funeral home you choose to work with, your plan will be transferable to any funeral home in the United States that accepts the contract.
