The Advantages Are Many
Just as people both young and old carry health and life insurance to protect their families, establishing a pre-arranged funeral can protect them from financial and emotional burdens.
Did you know that there are between 100 and 200 separate activities that must be conducted and coordinated within 48 hours of a death?
With advance planning, most of the difficult decisions have already been made before the time of need — sparing your loved ones from struggling to make correct choices at a time when their emotions can make it difficult.
While Milward associates are trained to ease that burden and help them make informed decisions, there’s no question that pre-arranged funerals offer several advantages. Among them:
- The opportunity to make unhurried decisions
This includes everything from the type of funeral and professional services you prefer to your preference for burial, entombment or cremation, to the selection of casket, vault or other types of merchandise.
- Easing the burden on your family
In addition to sparing your loved ones from having to make difficult decisions, it comforts them to know that the funeral will be held in precisely the manner you wanted.
- Guaranteed price
Funeral prices continue to rise over time, like the prices of other goods and services — unless arrangements are funded in advance to be fully paid at the time of need. If you choose to pre-fund, we offer a number of plans and payment options, including the Milward Guaranteed Inflation Proof Funeral Plan™.
