Aside from the financial benefits, and even more important in many cases, is that pre-planning removes a great burden from families by having choices and preferences recorded and kept on file well in advance. Loved ones are not guessing what your desires are during a very difficult time of loss for them. If the plan is pre-funded, it removes any financial strain on surviving family members. 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, adding, “it’s a much easier discussion when a person is not facing any imminent health concerns”.
