When it comes to your final tribute and the arrangements for the celebration of your life, shouldn't you make your own decisions and share those intentions with your loved ones?
Pre-planning can be helpful in a Medicaid spend down situation and provide you peace of mind that your surviving family and friends will not have to determine what your true intentions were. You are able to select floral arrangements, music, hymns, religious readings, videos, clergy, and literally be a guest at your own farewell.
Also, by pre-planning, you do your family a kindness by lessening their grief by having your plan in place so that your surviving loved ones can focus on you, your impacts on their lives, grieving your loss, paying respect, and deriving comfort from fellowship with friends and family.
Pre-planning will not be a financial burden on your loved ones either - because you lock in today's cost for tomorrow's need. For example, if you plan your funeral today, and 20 years from now you pass, the cost is not going to increase for your family. Today's cost is pre-paid through purchase of a pre-need life insurance policy, which Maher's handles in house.
While pre-planning your own final tribute, it is also a good and responsible move to prepare your estate plan, usually consisting of your will, power of attorney for property, power of attorney for medical care, trust, and ensuring that your life insurance and retirement accounts are up to date with your intended beneficiaries. This too can be accomplished at Maher's.
