Other items to consider that will assist your family include the following:
Inform your family
Make Time for Discussion
It is important to take time to visit with your family about your plans. This is also an opportunity to visit with them about your estate planning and inform them where your documents are. In addition, you can discuss your health care directive wishes and share with them your funeral and memorial service information.
How Do I Pre-Pay For My Services?
Pre funding your funeral is also an important consideration. We can show you the options that will save your family from any possible financial burden later. You may take out a life insurance policy that would cover funeral expenses, or invest in a funeral trust account or final expense insurance policy. In most situations, funds invested today will be sufficient to cover the total cost of the funeral at the time of need, since interest earned by the funds will offset the effects of inflation.
Government regulations safeguard your investment so funds will always be available for the intended use. Another important component in your plan is to make sure your loved ones know where your recorded wishes can be found. Each year millions of dollars in government and insurance death benefits go unclaimed because family members do not know where to find the information they need at the time of death.
