The Three Basic Reasons for Making Early Funeral Arrangements
Please consider the three primary reasons for making early funeral arrangements at Perl Funeral Home:
When a loved one dies, prior arrangements with us can make things less difficult for the family.
For the critically ill, it can be a good idea to empower those involved with everything from following your last will and testament to handling your insurance company.
Arrangements for your own funeral give everyone peace of mind knowing everything will be taken care of according to your final wishes.
As Many as 70-100 Decisions Must Be Made within 48 Hours
Did you know as many 70-100 decisions are usually made within the first 48 hours after a death? Let that unsettling thought sink in for a moment. When people are mourning the loss of a loved one, it can be overwhelming to make so many decisions. Moreover, many individuals don’t use the best judgment when their brains are clouded in grief. Pre-planning can be one of the most meaningful gifts you can give your friends and family after you’re gone. Just making the decision between traditional burial or cremation can be a massive relief to those tasked with ensuring your best interests are met. Going a step beyond that and choosing the funeral home, cemetery, casket, urn, pallbearers, and ceremony details ensures everything is accounted for and taken care of in the final hour.
Pre-Planning Also Allows You to Pre-Pay Your Funeral Costs
Pre-planning your funeral with Perl Funeral Home & Siskiyou Memorial Park also allows you to make pre-payments toward your funeral or burial costs. Whether you’d like to set up monthly payments now or arrange for one lump sum to come out of a specific bank account or trust fund when the time comes, the choice is up to you. Pre-paying your funeral protects you from the rising costs of inflation and is non-taxable. If your funeral ends up costing less than what you allocated, the money can usually be returned to your beneficiaries. Talk about peace of mind!
Your pre-planning package is also flexible, should you ever change your mind about something or need to make amendments. And if you ever move away and require the services of another funeral home, most plans are easily transferrable (although you’ll need to speak to the other funeral home to be sure). Speak with our knowledgeable funeral director and staff today about any questions or concerns you may have regarding funeral pre-planning.
