People choose to make funeral arrangements ahead of time for many reasons. Prearranging allows individuals and families to make funeral decisions in a calm atmosphere, without the emotional distress that is involved with arranging a funeral at the time of need. When you preplan your funeral, you will receive exactly the funeral you want, and your family will be spared from having to make those decisions while reeling with grief.
Once you've made your choices regarding your funeral, you can also choose to pay for your arrangements in advance. With preneed life insurance, which is designed specifically for prearrangement funding, you'll know that the funds will be there when they are needed.
