Why Should I Plan Ahead

Pre-planning is a matter of taking the time to think about – and record – your end-of-life desires. It’s a thoughtful gesture to those you love, and a way to let go of anxieties about the future. Once done, you can relax, knowing your plans are in the hands of reliable friends or family.

It’s All About Communication

Given time to consider it, you’ll quickly realize that pre-planning is all about ensuring that your wishes are known, so they can be acted upon when the time comes. Making the commitment to planning ahead:

- Is easy. There’s no health questionnaire or physical exam required. Absolutely everyone can make a pre-plan, and there is no waiting for return documents. The plan is completed, and put on file in our office.

- Lets your family clearly know your wishes.

- Relieves your family members of making very personal decisions on your behalf at the time of need.

- Can protect your family from the ravages of inflation. Your expenses can be covered when you need them to be, through a pre-payment plan.


Does Pre-planning Require Pre-payment?

No. The pre-planning can be as detailed as you are comfortable with, and there is never a requirement to pay any amount in advance.

We do offer pre-funding options as a way to set aside money to cover or help with your final expenses. If you think that this may be something that would be beneficial for you or your loved one, please call us at (701)232-3222 or click on the Contact Us link below.
