Pre-arrangement is a thoughtful method of funeral and cemetery planning that has grown in popularity. People make these arrangements with the desire to avoid burdening their families, while others are pleased at the thought of having taken care of everything independently. People also make these decisive choices when they have no family or children to make arrangements for them.
With pre-arrangement, you have positive assurance that the funeral and final resting place will represent your personal lifestyle and beliefs. Making arrangements when you are able, through careful thought and active discussions with all involved, will make clear your wishes with regard to visitation, memorial services and manner of final disposition. You arrange exactly the type of funeral service you desire, for yourself or for family members, and bring peace of mind to your loved ones. Beinhauer Family Services and the staff of Woodruff Memorial Park have always been sensitive to family needs, arranging a funeral and burial, or final disposition that celebrates the life of the deceased.
The information needed for legal forms and important paperwork for your funeral or cremation arrangements will be handled only by a licensed funeral director. Your burial arrangements will only be handled by an experienced cemeterian.
An investment made in a pre-arranged, pre-financed funeral, burial or cremation is protected by law. This plan is available regardless of age or physical condition.
Outlined below are several important advantages of making pre-arrangements for your funeral:
- Your family will not face financial burdens because your affairs will be in order
- Your family will be informed about your funeral preferences
- Your family is relieved of the burden of payment
- You can assure adequate funds for your pre-arranged funeral
- Your investment is secure
- Your funds are protected from inflation
- Your funds are not considered an asset when applying for Medicaid benefits
- You may select the payment plan and method that suits you
- No physical examination is required
Nowhere is the need for advance planning of burial and funeral services more important than in the situation where the individual has reviewed all of the available options and decided to select cremation. Pre-planning is critical.
Most of us make our own decisions about daily life and future plans. We control the final distribution of our assets and care of our survivors through life insurance policies and provisions in a will. The same attentive care given to these decisions should also be extended to the decision about cremation.
What advanced planning should you do?
- Research and understand the teaching of your faith community.
- Discuss the choice with those closest to you to ensure their ability to deal with your wishes, should you pre-decease them.
- Consult with experienced professionals about arrangements that can be made in advance. Selections would include choice of cemetery, decision about in ground or above ground interment of the cremated remains, selection of appropriate urn, and provisions for payment in advance of all items that can be secured.
- Study and be familiar with the variety of funeral service options provided for the benefit of you and your family, services that have traditionally included a visitation, final celebration with the body present, and a committal service. Take into account the time necessary to perform the cremation, and factor that into the schedule of these celebrations. This will be especially important when the decision for cremation is based on the desire to be buried at a distance from the place of death.
- Become knowledgeable about your choices in regards to caskets and urns. Most crematories require that a body be enclosed in a rigid container providing for the dignity of the deceased, and the health and safety of the crematory operator.
Some Legal Considerations:
Each state sets the list of parties who can authorize a cremation. The area where conflict may arise is among children and other relatives. Clear and firm documentation of a deceased’s wishes for final arrangements is the best way to avoid family conflicts.
