Why Pre-Plan?

Pre-planing offers you and your family a number of benefits:

Emotional benefits

  • More time to consider your options – You and your family will have time to explore your options and make well-informed decisions without feeling rushed.
  • A sense of accomplishment – You’ll feel good knowing that these arrangements have been made.
  • Fewer family concerns – Your survivors will have less to worry about in the event of your death.

Financial benefits

  • The option to prepay – When you prepay, you lock in today’s prices. The Unity staff will explain payment methods and investment options to help you decide the beset arrangement for you and your family.
  • Your family keeps more – When you prepay for your site and/or a complete memorial package, your estate will incur fewer expenses at the time of your death. More of your assets and life insurance proceeds will go directly to your family.
  • Save the amount you need – Once you understand all the costs involved, you can earmark a portion of your savings to cover these costs.
