Practical Benefits of Pre-Planning a Funeral Service Planning a funeral in advance is a wise thing to do for many practical reasons and to have a better understanding of why it is sensible to plan ahead, here is a comparison between “at-need” funeral arrangements vs. pre-need funeral planning. “At-need” funeral arrangements are made at the time of death by the surviving family members or by a trusted friend on behalf of the deceased. Planning for funeral arrangements at the time of death can pose a lot of issues and difficulties for the surviving family members, and these are the observed problems: the time frame is short and emotions are high as survivors are dealing with their grief and there is much planning to do, as well as looming financial concerns, where funeral services can be expensive and which can be a considerable hardship for most families. Pre-need funeral plans or also known as pre-plan funeral plans are made while the person of interest is still living and for reasons that are beneficial for the person and to his/her surviving family. Aside from funeral homes, cemeteries, and funeral service companies, websites that specialize in pre-plan funeral services are also available and complete with guides, planning worksheets and interactive tools.

Planning anything ahead is considered good planning and this applies to pre-need funeral plans, so, here the practical benefits that can be derived from it.
What Has Changed Recently With Funerals?
Availing of a pre-plan funeral service can help ease the burden of the surviving family, not just in terms of the financial costs, but more so with how the principal holder of the plan wants his/her funeral service be carried out, such as: will he/she want to be buried or cremated, will it be an open or closed casket, and which cemetery or crematory. Planning ahead can help you also prepare for funeral insurance and funeral trusts, and in this manner, you assume the financial responsibility for your funeral. With a pre-need funeral plan, you can give your family the benefit of a meaningful funeral with a fitting ceremony, a proper send off, and most of all, it provides a psychological sense of closure which can enable the family to begin the healing process. If you want specific instructions for the deposition of your remains and the nature of your funeral services, you can express that in your funeral plan, such that you may have a preference for a burial or cremation or what epitaph to write on your headstone or what music or readings during the funeral service, all these can be done with in your pre-need funeral plan. By planning ahead of your funeral arrangements, you are making yourself self-reliant and realistic, having everything in order at the end of your life, aside from leaving this as a legacy to your family, since it is comforting to know that you have done everything to ease their burden, and in return, your family will truly appreciate what you have done for them when you are gone.
