Cremation Pre-Planning

Pre-Need Funeral Plans

Memorial services should be an outlet for the bereaved to remember and celebrate the life of the departed. This is why taking the time to arrange your funeral now leaves one less thing your loved ones will need to worry about once you've passed. Getting pre-need funeral plans for yourself and your loved ones lets you make all the decisions, including the financial aspect, even before the inevitability of passing on happens.

It's beneficial to start on your pre-need funeral plans to get pre-funding, along with other financing options. Pre-funding means you pay for the present market value of the arrangements instead of having your family pay for it in the future when the prices are possibly higher. The pre-need plans grow as investments and earn interest to keep up with inflation so it can cover the cost of the later funeral prices when the death occurs. Funerals can be expensive, but pre-planning gives you financial options, saving your family from multiple bills.

All the steps in a pre-need funeral plan let you protect your loved ones from additional worries and stress, on top of the grief. At Direct Cremation Services of Virginia, we help you every step of the way. This section contains useful information about the benefits of pre-payment and funeral planning in Chantilly, VA and Stephens City, VA.
