What Are Prepaid Cremation Services?
Planning a cremation service involves some expense and depending on the services you opt for, the costs can sometimes be high. Families with modest means or too many financial commitments find it difficult to pay for the funeral/cremation of a family member. This is where a prepaid cremation solution comes in.
About Prepaid Cremations
We at Nutmeg State Cremation Society have seen that many people are now curious about what is involved in this service. If you prefer to be cremated after your death, you can opt for a prepaid service. In a prepaid cremation, you pay for the service while you are alive and can choose all aspects of it.
You can decide what type of casket you want and whether you want your ashes to be buried in a cemetery or placed in a columbarium. Sometimes family members prefer to take their loved one’s ashes home in an urn- they may bury it either in their yard or place the urn on the mantel in their home.
If you feel that any of your family members would want to do this, you can choose an urn you like, and mention that your ashes should be handed over to your family after the cremation. If you want a memorial service after the cremation, check with the funeral home whether that aspect can be part of the contract you sign with them.
Benefits Of A Prepaid Cremation Service
Since you pay for everything in advance, you do not have to worry about an escalation in cremation costs in the future. The price gets locked in at the time you sign the contract, making this a more cost-effective option for many. Some funeral homes also have flexible payment options where you can pay in installments over a certain period.
