Funeral Planning - How to Plan a Funeral

Funeral Planning cannot be avoided. A person who doesn't do research will end up losing thousands of dollars. Learn to funeral plan with this step by step guide.

1)Plan Ahead and Shop around in advance - You should compare at least two funeral homes in order to get the best price possible. If possible, try to find a funeral director who is certified with the NFDA (National funeral directors Association). It is not mandatory that they are certified but it guarantees a level of professionalism compared with a funeral director who is not. If you do not know how to find an NFDA certified director, contact us and we will be happy to do the research for you for free.

2)Ask for a price list - Remember that funeral homes are required by law to provide you with written itemized price lists in person or on the phone. Ask for a copy of these so that you can make your comparisons better.

3)Do not be pressured to buy - Remember, Funeral directors and Funeral homes are trying to sell you something. Do NOT say yes to everything. Learn to say NO and ask plenty of questions.

4)Avoid emotional overspending - It is not necessary to buy the most expensive casket or funeral. Most people won't have the money for a very elaborate funeral and will end up financing it with interest. In the end, this can be very expensive so try to keep your costs down.

5)Familiarize yourself with your rights - Funeral laws vary from state to state. Make sure you know what goods or services you are required to purchase and which ones are optional. The easiest way to find this information is to go to Google and type : Massachusetts funeral laws (change your state to match the state you are in).

6)Always think before you buy - Do not be afraid to ask the funeral director how you can "cut costs". For example, you can limit viewing to one day or one hour before the funeral. You can also dress your loved one up in a favorite outfit instead of paying extra for very expensive burial clothes.
