Why Should I Plan Ahead
We plan for every aspect of life. Having a family, vacations, weddings and retirement are all planned for. We prepare for what might happen such as fires, accidents and illness. But because most of us are uncomfortable thinking about our death, we often avoid making important decisions about our final arrangements.
It’s All About Taking Control
Given time to consider it, you’ll quickly realize that pre-planning is all about ensuring that your wishes are known, so they can be acted upon when the time comes. Making the commitment to planning ahead:
- Is easy. There’s no health questionnaire or physical exam required. Absolutely everyone can make a pre-plan, and there is no waiting for return documents. The plan is completed, and put on file in our office.
- Lets your family clearly know your wishes.
- Relieves your family members of making very personal decisions on your behalf at the time of need.
- Can protect your family from the ravages of inflation. Your expenses can be covered when you need them to be, through a pre-payment plan.
Does Pre-planning Require Pre-payment?
The simple answer is just two letters: No. You can set plan to paper by 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 inflation, by pre-funding your plan. This ensures your 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 trust account or top-rated insurance company until required. After your pre-plan is paid for in full, our price is guaranteed. You will never have to pay more for the items you have already paid for.
Why Pre-Plan with Heritage Cremation Society?
The loss of a loved one is never easy. It is a time of sadness and confusion when one turns to family, friends and faith for solace and support. It is also a time when personal grief can be unnecessarily deepened by the distress of unanswered questions and the anxiety of making detailed arrangements. At a time when your family most needs to seek each others comfort, they will be seeking answers, sorting papers, calling attorneys and perhaps, worrying about paying for final expenses.
The Heritage Cremation Society offers a simple prepayment plan that includes everything necessary to complete your final arrangements. The plan includes the biographical information required for completing the death certificate, authorization forms and instructions for carrying out your wishes. At the time of your death, the prepared documents authorize us to perform our services as you have instructed. You may change any instructions you wish during your lifetime by just contacting our Administrative Office. Once your prearranged plan is complete, our staff will provide you with a laminated personalized ID card. Your card will include our 24-hour Service Hotline phone number. Our staff is available to help you anytime – all it takes is a phone call and we will be there to serve you when you need us.
