The death of a loved one is something that many families avoid talking about because it is scary, rude, or just something that you don’t think about. We’re telling you that now is the time to break the silence and start discussing your wishes and making plans in the case of your death. The days and weeks after a loved one’s passing should be a time of grieving, celebration of life, and healing. It shouldn’t be a time to stress over finances and funeral arrangements.
It is important to protect your loved ones from suffering a financial crisis, in addition to the grief of losing a member of their family. Preparing for the worst begins at writing a will, but there are additional ways to unburden your beneficiaries. Purchasing cemetery plots and pre-paying for funeral costs during your life, allows you to make the arrangements the way that you would like them without being rushed or pressured into overpaying.
According to multiple studies, people who are sad or emotionally upset are more willing to overpay for products and services.
Another way that you can take care of your family after your passing is to purchase a quality life insurance policy. Many life insurance policies can completely cover funeral expenses, estate taxes, loss of income, and other inherited debts that may become your family’s responsibility. At Insurance Town and Country, we understand that choosing a life insurance policy is a huge decision and our insurance experts have years of experience helping to keep families like yours protected from the aftermath of tragedy.
