Financial Benefits

  • The Prepayment Option
    When you pre-pay, you can lock in today’s prices. Our funeral director will explain each payment method and investment option available, and will help you make a decision that best suits you and your family.

  • Your Family Keeps More
    When you pre-pay, your estate will owe nothing on funeral expenses. More of your assets and life insurance proceeds will go directly to your family.

  • Save the Amount You Need
    Once you gain an understanding of all the costs involved, you can earmark a portion of your savings to cover those costs.

  • Fewer Last-minute Expenses
    When you plan in advance, your family is less likely to incur additional expenses at the time of the funeral.
