Pre Planning locks you into the price, this can save you thousands. The act of Pre-Planning is a gift of freedom from worry, both emotional and financial. When done right, it offers clarity and assurance for the planner and gives peace-of-mind to loved ones.
Take unnecessary pressure off your family and friends
Families and friends in the midst of the stress and sorrow of loss are in no position to make difficult personal, emotional and financial decisions. Pre-planning eliminates these emotional and financial burdens from those you love.
Make better, more rational and thought-out decisions
Pre-planning always results in more confident and more sound decisions being made. The choice is more clear without having the time constraints or emotional influence.
Make your wishes known
Pre-Planning allows each of us to express our final wishes. With a plan in place, loved ones do not have to ‘guess’ about what we may have wanted.
No pre-qualification needed
Pre-Plan via funeral trust is available to everyone over age of 18, without any restrictions. No credit check, or any type of verification required.
Budget at your own pace with no interest fees
Pre-Planning allows comfortable, affordable, payments to be spread out over time with no interest. You can make payments when you desire, with installments as small as $25. Whereas, time-of-need planning always requires payments for goods and services to be made in full.
How to Pre-Plan?
First take a look at our Funeral Checklist, it outlines most of traditional funeral and memorial options. If you have something in mind that is more unique, has never been done or is just for fun - we will make it happen as well: from jets making sky writing to 50s themed memorial service.
Once you have some ideas in mind, please give us a call at (916) 564-0400 and we will set up a free appointment to review the options, prices and go over the necessary paperwork. If desired, we can setup a funeral trust which you can fund at your leisure or will work with your exiting life insurance. More information regarding Pre-Planning (pre-need agreements) can be found on Cemetery and Funeral Bureau of California Department of Consumer Affairs website.
