There are several advantages to you and to your family. First, you can arrange for a meaningful type of funeral service. You can select the casket and other merchandise that you want. This relieves your family of the burden of making those decisions at the time when they are emotionally distressed. They will not have to guess about your wishes. They will know because you have taken the time and the consideration to plan ahead.
Second, by making funeral prearrangements, you can also arrange to prepay or pre-finance. You will have the peace of mind of knowing that everything is taken care of and that there will be no additional financial burden or stress on your spouse, children, family, or friends.
Another advantage to you, the consumer, is that many funeral homes will guarantee the price of the funeral. This means that by paying for your funeral today, the funeral home will guarantee the price for the future. This will require you to deposit funds in a burial trust account (either IFDA Pre-Need Trust Fund or Pekin Life Insurance) and to let the interest accumulate.
We honor pre-arrangements from Any other funeral home and will honor any casket price from any other outside source.
