Pre-Planning and Pre-Payment
How can I make sure my funeral arrangements are carried out according to my wishes?
We keep detailed information on all pre- arrangements. In your time of need, rest assured that your wishes will be carried out to a tee. We share your desires with your survivors, providing them with copies of all correspondence and contracts involved in your pre-arrangements.
Should I pre-pay and/or pre-plan?
Either option is a great benefit to both you and your survivors. Just being aware of your final wishes is a relief for those left behind, since they are able to carry out your exact desires. Pre-paying relieves them of the expenses involved with your final disposition.
Can I opt out of pre-payment and/or pre-planning? What if I move out of the area?
We use Pekin Insurance for pre-financing. This is a one-premium life insurance policy in your name. The policy has a cash value, so if you decide to opt out, you receive the cash value of the policy. If you move out of the area and have a Pekin Insurance pre-arrangement policy with us, it can be transferred to the funeral home of your choice.
