Pre-planning is a great way to ensure a funeral service is carried out according to your wishes. It is also a good way to save money on funeral costs, especially if plan the expenses property. At Nutmeg State Cremation Society, we have helped several clients pre-plan funerals and save money. Here’s a look at the financial benefits of pre-planning:

1. Fixed Costs

Funeral costs grow every year due to inflation and rising overhead expenses. When you pre-plan a funeral, the prices are fixed for a certain period of time. This means your family can save thousands of dollars on funeral expenses. You can discuss these costs with the funeral director and look at the different payment plans available to accommodate a full service.

2. Helps the Family

Coming up with the money to pay for the funeral can be difficult, especially if the death happens without working. Most people don't think of setting up separate funds for their funerals. Pre-planning removes the financial burden from your family’s shoulders so they don’t need to dip into their savings at the last moment.

3. Avoid Overspending

Family members want to give their loved ones the best possible farewell. Some spend more money than they need to on funeral services, which can cause financial strain. Pre-planning removes the temptation and ensures families don’t feel compelled to overspend. Sometimes people feel like they have to give their deceased family member a grand funeral to express their love and grief. Pre-planning ensures they know the funeral is carried out according to your wishes and have no need to feel guilty about not spending enough.

At Nutmeg State Cremation Society, we provide comprehensive funeral services and can help you with all aspects of the process so if you have questions, don’t hesitate to contact us.
