Benefits of Funeral Pre-Planning

Why is it a good idea to plan your funeral ahead of time?

Our main goal at Iowa Funeral Planning is to give you an easy platform to begin your journey of planning ahead. Our counselors will take the time to answer your questions, give you price and service comparisons and demonstrate to you the many benefits of planning your final wishes ahead of time.

The financial benefits accompanying a pre-paid funeral plan with Iowa Funeral Planning:

  • A State of Iowa approved guaranteed contract.  Which means the risk of inflation becomes the burden of our funeral home, not you, allowing you to lock in today’s prices on goods and services.  An important distinction with Iowa Funeral Planning is we do not charge an additional fee, like some funeral providers, to guarantee the price on the contract. 
  • You have the ability to make interest free payments, and still receive the benefit of the guaranteed contract, allowing you to pay over time at a level that fits your budget.
  • With a pre-payment contract you have access to our current promotions, as well as the benefit of payment plans and the guaranteed contract.
  • You have the comfort of knowing your funeral pre-paid contract is being held in funeral trust by, Live Oak Bank, with over 200 years of experience and expertise in trust services.

The emotional benefits accompanying a pre-paid funeral plan with Iowa Funeral Planning:

  • Your final wishes are something in which you should have a say.  Making your wishes known and documented gives your survivors the comfort that they are doing what you wanted.
  • The relief that survivors feel when they know the funeral expenses are already paid is a tremendous comfort to them when the time comes.
  • Your thoughtfulness in leaving a plan for your survivors not only helps them financially, it also gives them a plan to follow.  Allowing them to spend their time after the death has occurred with their loved ones, not at the funeral home trying to organize all the details.

If you are interested in pre-planning your funeral, but aren’t sure where to begin, contact Iowa Funeral Planning today. We have resources, advice and counseling available to you so you can customize your final wishes and explain the expenses associated with your wishes.
