Anticipating and Planning for End of Life Expenses Will Ease Some Burden

It’s not easy to plan for the expenses and events of life which may come along. We plan for immediate needs like mortgages, rent, education, etc. In the back of our minds we think of weddings, travel, special events and other costs that may arise. One expense we are all certain to encounter, in some way, is the expense surrounding our passing. 

We’re more prepared for those other events or occurrences as they are likely ‘date-certain’, and far less scary or daunting than facing one’s own mortality.Or even the mortality of close family members and loved ones. Financial Planners have steadily added funeral arrangements and expenses to financial planning portfolios. While this expense is higher than some planned events and lower than others, it is an expense that will arise for each of us, with no precise time connected to it.

As professionals at Knollcrest Funeral Home and Steuerle Chapel, we understand the difficulty posed by sudden expenses. Our ministry, at its very core, means “we are here to help you in every possible way that we can.”  We will help sort through all the expenses and resources to make this time easier for families who are facing the loss of a loved one. We’ll help process all of the life insurance forms, veteran’s forms and other paperwork that seems so daunting during the planning of services. We’ll assist you in making affordable choices, while maintaining dignity in your plans. Families have a lot to cope with at the loss of a loved one. We’ll help in every way we can to cope with the financial burden.

If you have any questions or need any assistance at-need, or you’re considering pre-planning, please contact us. There is no obligation in either instance.
