Benefits

Throughout your life, you have given thoughtful consideration to the important decisions you have made. Sensible people have always prepared for those things that might happen by taking out fire or health insurance. That's why being prepared for what will some day happen, make even more sense.

"Advance funeral planning gives you the peace of mind that comes with knowing your funeral arrangements are taken care of, while lessening the burden on your survivors."
- American Association of Retired Persons

Funeral pre-arrangement plans select funeral services and merchandise before they are needed, often years before death actually occurs. There are several advantages of pre-arrangement:

  1. Your Family
    Without a doubt, the most important reason for pre-arranging your funeral is to spare your family numerous decisions at an emotionally difficult time. During this stressful time when reason is clouded, even the most sincere desire to create a fitting tribute can result in emotional overspending and other regretful decisions.
  2. Peace of Mind
    We often have special wishes concerning our funeral arrangements. Decisions Made Early provides you and your family the satisfaction of knowing everything will be taken care of according to your wishes.
  3. Saving Money
    If you choose to pay for your pre-arranged services and merchandise, those designated funds "freeze" the price of the funeral, protecting your from rising costs. For your added protection, pre-arrangement funds are held by a legal reserve life insurance company under the laws and supervision of the State of Texas.
