We plan for every aspect of life. Having a family, vacations, wedding, retirement are all planned. We prepare for what might happen such as fires, accidents or floods. But, because most of us do not like to think about death - we avoid making important funeral decisions in advance.
Now more than ever, it is important to plan ahead. Our way of life is more complicated. Family members often live in different states, dealing with government agencies can be frustrating, and the impact of inflation is felt by every household.
Family members making funeral arrangements immediately following a death often are confused and upset. Planning ahead prevents emotional mistakes and protects your family's interests (taken from Being Prepared: A Practical Guide to Government Benefits & Funeral Planning).
