What is Pre-Planning

Pre-planning provides you with the time needed to make detailed decisions that reflect your standards, lifestyle, taste and budget. Many questions can arise when you consider pre-arranging. Our funeral directors at Henneke Funeral Home can provide professional guidance and answer any questions you may have.

When you plan ahead, you have a sense of security and peace of mind. Security in knowing that survivors will be relieved of the burdensome decisions of not knowing exactly what arrangements you had in mind, and security in knowing that your funeral expenses will be covered and your loved ones won't have to carry that burden. And we assure you and your family that the choices you make will be carried out as planned.

When you finalize your plan, you have locked in today's prices. This protects you and your family against escalating funeral costs. There are several ways to fund your pre-need funeral plan. Funeral Directors Life Insurance Company has specifically designed plans that will pay for your customized funeral arrangements at death. Depending on your age, you may be able to choose among single payment, 3 year, or 5 year payment plans. If you will be applying for Medicaid/Supplemental Security Income, you have the option of making your funeral plan irrevocable, which means that the value of the plan is removed from the computation that determines eligibility for these government benefits.

When you consult with us, you are under no obligation to make a purchase or commitment. We are here to guide you and provide you the information you need to help you make your decision. You may simply decide to establish your plans with existing resources you may have, such as life insurance policies, savings and/or other assets, however, if this is the case, remember that the cost of a funeral will increase over time, and your family will pay for the funeral at tomorrow's higher prices.
