Pre-planning can be an investment strategy that removes many burdens.



Robert Spahn is a Financial Advisor. As part of his advisory services he has seen the increase in peoplepre-planning and even pre-funding their funeral services as part of their financial planning strategy. It eases a burden on the family, in terms of a loved one making choices for themselves and having them available at the time of their passing. In cases where pre-funding has occurred, it has also acted as a measure against inflation. Nationally, the cost of funeral arrangements is reported to be doubling over the course of 12 years. At Gibbons, the funeral home arrangements cost is honored at the time the pre-funding occurs. That policy is held independently by a separate insurance entity. If a family has moved, the pre-planning funding policy can be transferred to another funeral home.


People have always been a bit uncomfortable discussing life insurance, wills or funeral planning. “As a financial planner, I highly recommend that people address these concerns when they’re younger” says Mr. Spahn.
