Advanced Planning Opportunities
Why Plan Ahead?
Consideration for your Family
Those who have experienced the emotional stress of arranging a funeral within hours of losing a loved one are making the choice to pre-plan their own funeral. Pre-planning lifts the burden from your loved ones allows them to reflect upon the memories of your life, rather than the details of your death.
Memorial arrangements are a personal choice. Pre-planning provides the time needed to make practical, detailed decisions that reflect your ideals,
lifestyle, taste and budget. We assure you and your family that the choices you make will be carried out as planned.
When you finalize your plan, we can advise you of the total cost. You do not have to pre-pay or pre-finance your plan, but doing so protects you against escalating funeral prices. By locking in today's funeral costs and ensuring that the necessary funds are set aside, you relieve yourself of escalating cost concerns and your survivors of unexpected expenses.
How to Pre-Plan...
Although you may begin the process yourself, many resources are available to assist you with the details. Please call 619-440-8033, or send us an message using the form below, and we can help you get started.
There are three basic levels of advanced planning. The following is an overview of those levels.
- The first level is recording vital information that is kept on record at our facility. This information contains special dates and information that we use to complete an obituary. In addition, preferences concerning the memorial service are recorded so that specific wishes can be carried out. We've assembled some frequently asked questions (FAQ's) to give you a better idea of the types of information involved. See FAQ's.
- The second level includes selecting specific services and the merchandise associated with the services. This may include a casket, clothing, urn, cremation container, or other merchandise. Please see our FAQ's for more details.
- The third level involves pre-funding these expenses. This allows you to pay for the services at current prices, assuring you limited, future financial responsibility on you or your family. (Please note that some items cannot be pre-funded since they are regulatory fees which cannot be locked in.)
The options available for pre-funding range from immediate payment to longer term options - including burial insurance policies and trusts. Our professional, advanced planners can assist you with finding the plan that fits your needs.
At El Cajon-Lakeside-Santee Mortuary, you can pre-arrange as little or as much as you and your family feel comfortable doing.
