In recent years, millions of consumers have chosen to pre-plan their funerals. Fully one-third of Americans 55 and older have pre-planned at least some part of their own funerals. And 84% of all Americans think pre-planning is a good idea. Pre-planning can make things easier for family members at the difficult time of a death. Much of the paperwork has already been completed and many of the expenses have been pre-paid, allowing loved ones to focus on their grief and the creation of a personalized ceremony. If you’re considering pre-planning, talk to a reputable professional who is experienced with funeral pre-planning.
Make sure you understand how and where the money will be invested. Make sure the plan is flexible in case you want to alter plans or transfer it to another funeral home should you relocate. Also ask about financing terms and cancellation and refund policies. Finally, keep a copy of your plan in a safe place and tell a close family member or friend about the arrangements and the location of the documents. If you would like to start the planning process please call us at (307) 673-5837. Thank you for your interest in Kane Funeral Home.
