Why Should I Plan Ahead

Pre-need Funeral Planning Services Mississippi

When the time comes to arrange pre-need funeral planning, Mississippi residents may be overwhelmed by the wide array of choices available to them. However, planning a funeral doesn’t have to be a stressful and confusing experience, especially if you have a pre-planning expert to assist you. Bradford O’Keefe Funeral Homes has over 150 years of experience providing funeral care to the community, and the staff members at our five convenient locations throughout Biloxi, Gulfport, Ocean Springs, and Vancleave are ready to offer the guidance you need during this phase of planning.

The Benefits of Planning Ahead

It is important to begin laying the foundations early. Those beginning the pre-planning process are encouraged to begin considering their end-of-life desires and to record them for future use by loved ones. There are a number of benefits to making the commitment to planning ahead:

-Pre-planning is simple. No medical documentation or exams are necessary, meaning that anyone can easily  make a pre-plan without waiting for return documents. Once you have recorded your wishes, we will place  them on file in our offices for safekeeping.

-Pre-planning allows your family to know your wishes clearly. This process relieves your family members of  the burden of making personal decisions on your behalf at a later date and under emotional duress. By  recording your preferences, you lessen your loved ones’ anxieties and give them tangible steps to act upon  when the time comes.

-Pre-planning can protect your family from the rising costs of inflation. If you decide to take advantage of  optional pre-payment plans, all expenses of your services can be covered in order to give your family peace  of mind.

The Benefits of Pre-Payment

Pre-payment is an optional part of the pre-planning process, and you are not required to pre-pay. However, this option offers several benefits for you and your family:

-Pre-payment allows you to protect your family from inflation, ensuring that all of your expenses are covered at the time of your passing.

-Pre-payment is a safe option. If you decide to pre-fund your final arrangements, your money will be secured in a state-approved trust account or with a top-rated insurance company until it is needed.

-Pre-payment made through Bradford O’Keefe Funeral Homes ensures that you will never have to pay more for items you have already funded. Once your pre-plan is paid for in full, our price is guaranteed.

-Pre-payment plans go where you go. No matter where you live at the time of your passing and no matter which funeral home you and your family decide to work with, your plan will be transferable to any funeral home in the United States.

-Pre-payment can be done through a variety of payment options that can fit any budget, allowing you to choose the payment option that works best for your needs.
