Pre-Arranging a Funeral Service
More and more people are pre-arranging their own funerals to help ease emotional or financial strain on their families at the time of need. Once you have selected a funeral director and reviewed options, the next step in pre-planning your funeral should be to meet with your family and talk to them about the type of funeral you want.
Next, arrange a conference with your funeral director, including your family members if you wish, to review and formalize your plans in writing. Review your plans periodically, and update them as you feel necessary. Finally, have your funeral director explain funding options. Funding a pre-arranged funeral service is a choice many people make to ease a future financial burden on family members.
