Why Pre-Plan

Plan for the Day.

Why it makes sense to make choices about your future funeral now.

It's all about taking control

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?

Does pre-planning require pre-payment?

The simple answer is just two letters: No. You can set plan to paper by simply recording your wishes, and leave it for your family to pay for your desired services at the time of your passing.

Or, you can protect you and your family from inflation, by pre-funding your plan. This ensures your expenses will be covered when you need them to be.

When you choose to pre-fund your final arrangements, your money is put in a state-approved trust account or top-rated insurance company until required. After your pre-plan is paid for in full, our price is guaranteed. You will never have to pay more for the items you have already paid for.

Another point we’d like to stress: When you pre-plan with Goldfinch Funeral Services, your plan will go where you go. No matter where you reside at the time of your passing, no matter what funeral home you choose to work with, your plan will be transferable to any funeral home in the United States.
