Pre-Planning FAQ



Why is pre-planning necessary?
Pre-planning is simple, and is one of the most important things you can do for yourself and your family. Pre-planning allows you to discuss arrangements with your loved ones and make your plans together with a clear mind and a more relaxed atmosphere. In addition, it protects your estate from unnecessary financial outlay. Pre-planning also helps to protect your loved ones both emotionally and financially, at a time when they need that security.

You can start by completing the online Parthemore Pre-Planning Worksheet. This form will remain on file with Parthemore Funeral Home & Cremation Services and will serve as the basis for planning your memorial service.

Do I need to pay for pre-arrangements?

No. Although there are many benefits to pre-paying funeral arrangements, the most important thing for you to do is to get your information, wishes and instructions on file with the funeral home.

CoupleWhat are the benefits to pre-financing?

Pre-planning and pre-financing work together to offer peace of mind. From a financial standpoint, pre-paying beats future inflation by freezing the cost of the funeral at today's prices. Pre-payment plans give you flexibility today while ensuring the financial resources will be there when they are needed. The financial burden is lifted from your family, minimizing the mental & emotional stress of major decision-making at the time of death.

How does pre-financing work?
If you choose to, you may also arrange for pre-funding your funeral services. Several options are available to meet your needs. We can also help you select the most appropriate means of funding - whether through insurance, trust or a local bank. It’s important to know that, when you pre-fund with a licensed funeral director, 100% of the funds must be kept in trust until the funeral services have been provided.

What happens if I move, relocate or desire another funeral home?
Your account is listed under your own social security number with our funeral home listed as the service provider. If you move, or for any other reason desire to change service providers, your plan is completely transportable. Wherever you go, your money will follow. Changing funeral homes is easy and only requires completing a short form.

Are pre-arrangements a good idea for both cremation and traditional burial?
Yes. All of the decision making and information gathering involved in a traditional burial are involved in a cremation. Although cremation allows for the most simple of arrangements, the only real difference between cremation and a traditional burial is the final mode of disposition.

Can I make all of my funeral arrangements through a funeral home?
Complete arrangements, including professional services; casket, vault and urn selection; cremation; church, floral, newspaper & cemetery coordination can be accomplished through our funeral home.

Can I make all of my funeral arrangements through a cemetery?
No, since non-licensed sales people, by law, cannot arrange funeral services.
