PREARRANGEMENT - Why Prearrange?
People prearrange funerals for many reasons. Some have definite preferences concerning the funeral service or merchandise and want their families to be informed and involved in the decisions. Others want to save their survivors from having to make the decisions at a difficult and confusing time.
Some individuals who have been faced with making selections for loved ones may wish to spare others from the indecision, guessing, emotion, or anxiety they experienced. Still others may prearrange because no one else is capable of making responsible decisions. Many like the benefit of financial savings that come from prepaying expenses. In any case, funeral prearrangement can alleviate many concerns and is often viewed as an element of estate planning.
