The best time to begin making your pre-arrangements is now, while you’re thinking about it.
While some people in their 40s and 50s may think it’s too early to pre-plan, it actually makes good financial sense and removes the chance of leaving this difficult task to family members. By taking the time now to research cost information and calmly make choices related to your own funeral arrangements, you’ll be protecting your loved ones from the burden of having to make these decisions at a time of extreme emotional stress. Prepaid programs through funeral homes allow individuals to fund their funerals in advance through different investment vehicles. Nicholas F Cognetta Funeral Home offers these pre-arranged funeral services to Darien, Stamford, and the surrounding areas of Connecticut.
Common reasons for Pre-Arranging Funeral Services:
- Ensures Your Wishes are Known: Many people have ideas about what they would like done surrounding their death. Regardless of what your preferences might be, planning your funeral service in advance helps ensure that your priorities are taken into consideration. It also gives you a chance to inject some of your personality into the event and influence the way you are remembered. This can provide a lot of comfort to your surviving loved ones.
- Reduces Stress for Loved Ones: Planning a funeral service for you can put a lot of stress on your friends and family at an already emotional time. Pre-planning your funeral allows your loved ones to focus on other necessary things by relieving them of this practical and financial responsibility.
- Saves Money: When you pre-plan your funeral service, you are actually helping to save money. Planning ahead gives you the time and energy to shop around to find the best deals, preventing overspending. By arranging everything in advance, you lock in your rate. This guarantees that your family will never have to pay more for your funeral, regardless of inflation. It also helps you to plan ahead and prepare financially so that there are no unexpected expenses when the time comes.
- Encourages Meaningful Discussion: While talking to your loved ones about death might feel uncomfortable at first, many people find that it leads to impactful conversations about what is important to them. Getting on the same page helps your loved ones find peace after your death; it also helps you all to learn more about one another.
