Why Pre-plan?

Losing a loved one can be a difficult and emotional time, and planning a funeral can add to the stress. Often, families are not aware of their loved one's final wishes, and the cost of a funeral can be a financial burden. However, pre-planning a funeral can help ease the emotional and financial burden on the family. By pre-planning, the family can ensure that their loved one's wishes are carried out and that the cost of the funeral is covered.

What is a pre-need plan?

A pre-need plan is a funeral contract that you can choose for yourself or your loved one. It outlines the funeral goods and services that you select personally. The second component of this plan is a pre-need insurance policy. Its benefits are assigned to pay for the funeral goods and services that you have selected when the need arises. We can help you set up a payment plan that suits your needs, from a single payment plan to monthly bank account withdrawals. By pre-paying your funeral, you eliminate the possibility of your family second-guessing themselves on whether they have spent too much or too little on your funeral. For more information on what is applicable in your region, simply speak to a pre-planning adviser at our funeral home by calling (512) 444-3355. Each year, thousands of people opt for pre-planning and pre-paying their funeral, which provides flexibility to accommodate changes in their lives.
