The difference between a pre-arranged funeral and a pre-paid funeral
For those who would like their funeral wishes to be recorded, both pre-arranged and pre-paid funerals are options. The difference is a pre-paid funeral, as its name suggests, is paid in advance. By paying in advance for your funeral, you have peace of mind knowing that your family won’t be put under any financial strain when you pass away. However, for many a pre-paid funeral can be a financial strain in the present, which is why the next best thing is a pre-arranged funeral.
The benefits of a pre-paid funeral
While funerals are a topic most of us like to avoid, planning a pre-paid funeral takes the burden away from your family at a very difficult time. It’s unfortunate but the death of a loved one not only puts an emotional strain on a family, but also financially too. By investing in a pre-paid funeral you will ease the financial burden on your family, whilst allowing them to still take part in the planning process of your funeral. It will also provide you with the important peace of mind that your family won’t have to worry about paying for your funeral, and also that your last wishes are carried out. Plus, you are protected against inflation as you pay today’s prices.
