In a person’s lifetime, there will be numerous types of insurances that will be offered by agents or brokers. But, one specific type of insurance plan that everybody should get is the pre-need funeral insurance.
Funeral insurances are very useful because they take care of all the expenses which will be used when a person passes away. Getting a good pre-need plan is a part of funeral planning. Unlike health insurances or accident insurances which can only be used if there are accidents or health problems that will occur, you are sure that your money for this pre-need plan will be used because everybody will eventually die.
- Funeral Plans are Highly Personalized. There is no plan that is common to all. Funeral directors may suggest certain items to be included in your plan but it will still be your decision as to which items and services you want to include in it. You can omit certain aspects and add specific things to your desire. These arrangements can be done with the funeral director. He can write a policy for you which you can pay in advance through multiple smaller payments.
- Inclusions that can be added in a Funeral Plan. The services or the inclusions that you can choose to add in your plan are the casket or the urn, the cost of cremation if you want to be cremated or the cost of the embalmment if you want a traditional burial, the plot of land where the burial will take place, the cremation vault, the marker for your grave, the funeral flowers, and the transportation of your body to the burial site.
For those who are planning to get a funeral plan, it will be better to discuss everything with your family. Your relatives may assist you in making decisions regarding this matter.
