Choosing Pre-paid Funerals in Perth
One of the most thoughtful acts you can do is making sure your loved ones are taken care of when you leave. This includes preparing a will, getting your affairs in order, and planning for your funeral service in Perth. While it used to be that the wishes of the deceased was followed as closely as possible, today a lot of people are choosing to pre-plan their funeral. Taking this planning a step further, is the idea of pre-paid funerals.
We know how hard it is to say goodbye to a loved one when they pass away. There are a range of emotions to deal with, often all at once. From sadness to loss, among an assortment of other feelings, the loss of someone you love is never easy. An even more difficult matter is someone trying to plan a funeral while grieving.
Why People Pre-plan their Funerals
Everyone has different reasons for wanting to pre-plan their funeral service. No matter what your circumstance may be, one of the main benefits of pre-planning your service is that you’re taking the burden from your loved ones’ hands. By arranging everything in advance, you’re giving your family and friends a chance to focus on grieving their loss, and beginning to heal from it.
Another reason that people choose to pre-plan their memorial service is because they want things done a certain way. There are a lot of considerations to make when planning for your funeral. From floral arrangements to the location, you may have specific desires for your end-of-life service. It’s easier on your loved ones if they don’t need to guess what you would have wanted.
Pre-paying for Your Funeral In Perth
Taking things one step further, you can pre-pay for your funeral. Financial burdens are the leading cause of stress, no matter what the situation is. The last thing you want to do is add onto what your family is dealing with by having them figure out the best way to pay for your funeral costs. Even if you’ve left money behind for them to use, they’ll need to decide where that money should go.
You also save money by paying for your future service at today’s price. Like most things, funeral costs tend to rise every year. That means that a funeral today will probably cost less than the same funeral three or four years from now. Paying for your funeral now will save your loved ones money when you pass on. Pre-paying also protects you and your family from inflation, and the growth is non-taxable.
Depending on your region, if your funeral costs less than the amount you have put aside, those funds will be refunded back to your beneficiaries. For more information on what is applicable in your region, simply speak to your funeral director.
