In our industry, we use the term “Preneed” to describe planning one’s end-of-life affairs in advance. There are many reasons to plan a family estate or family member’s final resting place in advance, and we believe that Preneed planning can truly benefit the entire family.
The Importance of Estate Planning
While estate planning may at first seem unnerving, we find that families eventually take great comfort in having navigated end-of-life choices ahead of time. When estate planning decisions are made ahead of time, families are able to focus on the grieving process with less pressure and to reflect properly on a life well-lived.
You may have very particular wishes, including the location you would like to be interred, how the ceremony will unfold, or what attire you prefer. The caring staff at Travis Monument Group are experts at providing help where you need it and will always try to make sure your desires are fulfilled.
Preneed planning involves making final arrangements for the funeral and disposition of you or your loved one before passing. These plans may also be prepaid ahead of time at many funeral homes and cemeteries.
Some family members inquire about Preneed plans for their elders because they want to ensure that their loved one’s wishes are recorded while they are still able to clearly communicate their choices. These family members have often discussed the estate and burial in advance.
Preplanning allows you to consider your exact wishes for your memorial with ample time to understand what is possible and to choose carefully. Considering your memorial early also allows you to create a smart funding plan that can be paid in increments. Another reason many families complete a Preneed plan is that Medicaid may allow burial benefits.
