When you decide to plan your funeral and cemetery needs ahead of time you take control of how you want to be remembered. Pre-planning not only lifts the financial burden and difficult decision making off of your family but also provides the ultimate gift of peace of mind to those who will celebrate your life and legacy.
Today, more than ever, people want to avoid the possible mistakes that occur when arrangements are made at the time of extreme grief. You have the option to arrange funeral services ahead of time with our pre-arrangement counseling. It is our belief that pre-arranging is simply smart financial planning. Whether it is paid now to freeze the price, or arranged now but not funded, all arrangement conferences and consultations are FREE of charge.
The main benefits of preplanning are peace of mind and financial gains. By prefunding, we freeze the cost at today’s price. Did you know life insurance policies can extend to cover funeral and cemetery needs? You may not be aware of all the services and/or products that can be covered by prearranging, such as a casket or urn, grave burial vault and bronze memorial marker.
Please call our pre-need counselors to schedule a free, no purchase, no obligation appointment to discuss your specific wishes and needs. In return we will send you home with our FREE family planning guide to share with your family.
There is no better time than now, while you're thinking about it. By planning their own funerals, burial preferences, and often paying for these services in advance, those who pre-plan unburden their spouse, children and family from making decisions in a time of extreme grief. It is never too early to preplan. At Jefferson today, 92% of our burials have owned their burial estate for more than 30 years. Only 8% of families purchase after a death has occurred. Whether you are 55 or 85, the decision to pre-arrange is always a smart decision.
By taking time now to calmly make thoughtful, educated decisions related to your own funeral arrangements, you'll be protecting your family against the stress of having to make these decisions without you. This way you can carefully choose specific funeral, burial or cremation plans, as well memorial products you may want, and pay for them now or over time.
At Jefferson Memorial we will provide you with all of the information you will need to plan ahead. Our certified Family Service Counselors are your best resource for the preplanning process.
