What does preplanning your funeral entail?
Call us to talk to a funeral director about preplanning your funeral, please call us to set up an appointment to meet with a funeral director or preneed counselor. The average preneed appointment will take about 40 minutes of your time.
When you place a direct role in planning your funeral, you are ensured that your family knows what your wishes are which relieves them of having to wonder what your final wishes were when the time comes. It also ensures that your final wishes are honored.
While preplanning your funeral, please keep in mind that there are not any rules when it comes to planning a funeral. Some people want to go over every detail such as the songs played, the musicians, the flowers, and so forth. Others, might just want their family to know that they want to be buried in a wood casket at a certain cemetery leaving the details of the ceremony up to their loved ones.
Some of our customers come in with the desire to have their plans on file without making payment arrangements. When this is done, it is important for you to have means of covering your expenses at the time of need. The most popular route is to make the plans and pre-pay for the funeral.
If you have a preneed policy with another funeral home but would like to use our services, simply contact us either at the time of need or prior to their passing. We will be honored to serve your family and handle the transfer of the funds directly. This way, we handle it for you so that you don’t have to worry about confrontation or having to explain yourself.
Ways of funding your preneed account:
Deposit funds into a funeral trust account through the funeral home which is backed by the NC Board of Funeral Service.
Purchase a final expense insurance policy through Ingram Funeral Home.
Assign an existing life insurance policy over to Ingram Funeral Home.
Transfer an existing preneed from another funeral home to Ingram Funeral Home. We prefer to handle this for you once you instruct us of your wishes.
