Funeral Preplanning

Michael Penner

What are people saying about Purple Shield preplanning?

 

Many people are now looking to preplan their funerals so family members won't have to make stressful decisions nor wonder what was desired in terms of arrangements.

Preplanning can take two forms. It can be as simple as recording wishes on paper, with copies left with the funeral home and a family member or executor. The other option involves setting aside the funding necessary to look after funeral expenses.

More and more people are paying in advance to ensure that there will be funds quickly available to fulfill their wishes. The prepayment vehicle our funeral home uses is an insurance policy provided by Purple Shield/FamilySide. Besides having the funding in place and immediately available, there are certain tax and portability advantages in using a Purple Shield/FamilySide plan as opposed to savings accounts, GICs or trust accounts. If you want to know more about these advantages, contact us and we would be glad to explain them to you. Or, if you wish, you may contact the provincial Purple Shield/FamilySide office at 1-800-661-8959. Be sure to ask for Michael Penner. He is the Purple Shield/FamilySide representative that serves Moose Jaw Funeral Home.

The choice to preplan is a very personal one, as are the decisions you will be making. The best way to explain all your options in this regard is in person. If you would like to discuss this with us, without any obligation, feel free to contact us for an appointment at (306) 693-4550. We would also be pleased to provide you with a cost estimate of your wishes so you can consider setting aside the necessary funding.
