Why Should I Plan Ahead

Pre-planning is a matter of taking the time to think about – and record – your end-of-life desires. It’s a thoughtful gesture to those you love, and a way to let go of anxieties about the future. Once done, you can relax, knowing your plans are in the hands of reliable friends or family.

It’s All About Taking Control

Given time to consider it, you’ll quickly realize that pre-planning is all about ensuring that your wishes are known, so they can be acted upon when the time comes. Making the commitment to planning ahead:

- Is easy. There’s no health questionnaire or physical exam required. Absolutely everyone can make a pre-plan, and there is no waiting for return documents. The plan is completed, and put on file in our office.

- Lets your family clearly know your wishes.

- Relieves your family members of making very personal decisions on your behalf at the time of need.

- Can help your family lessen the impact of inflation. Funds would be available when you need them to be, through a pre-funding plan.


Does Pre-planning Require Pre-payment?

The simple answer is just two letters: No. You can set plan to paper by simply recording your wishes, and leave it for your family to pay for your desired services at the time of your passing.

Or, you can help protect you or your family's assets by pre-funding your plan. This ensures that finances will be available to be applied towards funeral expenses when you need them.

When you choose to pre-fund your final arrangements, your money is put in a state-approved trust account or top-rated insurance company until required.  This funding does not lock you into a decision made at the time of the pre-need discussion, but allows you to change your mind as to all aspects of your funeral needs.  You retain ownership of the pre-funded accounts and Schuller Family Funeral Homes only receives funds when funeral services are provided at the time of need.

Another point we’d like to stress: When you pre-plan with Schuller Family Funeral Homes, your plan will go where you go. No matter where you reside at the time of your passing, no matter what funeral home you choose to work with, your plan will be transferable to any funeral home in the United States.
