When is the Best Time to Pre-Plan Your Funeral?
The best time to begin making your pre-arrangements is now, while you're thinking about it. While some people in their 40s and 50s may think it's too early to pre-plan, people who do say that pre-arranging their funerals is smart financial planning and gives them added peace of mind, knowing they aren't leaving this burden to family members. By taking time now to collect cost information and calmly making choices related to your own funeral arrangements, you'll be protecting your family against the stress of having to make these decisions at a time of extreme emotional stress. This way you can carefully choose specific items you want and need, and pay for them now. Pre-planning through funeral homes allows families to fund their funerals in advance through different investment vehicles.

Reduces stress for friends and family at an already emotional time
Guarantees your family will never have to pay more for your funeral — no matter what happens with inflation
