Money is a huge factor with funeral planning. With the average funeral costing upwards of $10,000, it is not something you’d want to put on a credit card. But in the past, getting accurate pricing used to be a nightmare. The Federal Trade Commission changed that by passing the Funeral Rule. It forced businesses taking advantage of people’s grief to make costs transparent and easy to understand. That way, you receive exactly what you want and nothing you don’t.
For millions of people every year, losing a loved one is a nightmare come true. In the midst of the weight of grief, they’re called upon to take care of their loved one’s final affairs and arrange for a fitting tribute. This is the last thing anyone wants to be in charge of with the pressure of perfection and the looming amount of people attending. And yet, this is what many families have to do, on very short notice.
Funeral pre planning is a solution to a stressful situation during a family’s hardest moments. By making some or all of the arrangements in advance, family members worry less about making plans or paying for a person’s final rest. And even better, people can live their last years knowing that they have made these plans for themselves, just the way they want it.
