When death occurs in a family, the grief is often tremendous and confusing. Pre-planning your funeral is one of the most thoughtful things you can do for yourself and your loved ones.
Prearrangement gives you the security and satisfaction of knowing you have made sound decisions. This peace of mind provides benefits far beyond the dollars spent. You can make sure that you do not add a financial burden to your loved ones and family members left behind.
Prearrangements offer you the opportunity to have your burial wishes honored and allow you to control the cost of your funeral. Like everything else, the cost of funerals will surely continue to increase every year. A guaranteed preneed contract will allow the cost of the funeral to be locked in at today's prices.
There are many options available to fund a preneed contract, such as through a single payment plan or a monthly payment plan. Preneed funds are placed in a preneed trust, either with a federally insured financial institution or a burial policy with an insurance company. Contact our office to set up an appointment to speak with one of our funeral directors about the best prearrangement option for you.
Prepaid funeral contracts are governed by the South Carolina Department of Consumer Affairs, which is responsible for overseeing all licensed preneed providers. Preneed contracts can also be transferred from one funeral home to another.
