Another reason to pre-plan is to ensure that your family will receive all of the benefits for which they are entitled. It is important that all of your personal records, including bank account numbers, investment information, insurance policy numbers and location of important papers be accessible to your family in the event of a death. All of this and your personal wishes for your funeral can be recorded in a Personal Arrangement Guide booklet that we provide free of charge. This ensures that the protection you worked and planned for, will be received by your beneficiaries when they need it most.
Although not required when making pre-arrangements, most people choose to set aside funds that will cover their future funeral and final expenses. With our “Complete Care Prearrangement Program”, we offer a variety of prepayment programs which allow you to control cost, avoid emotional overspending, and guarantee today’s price. At Woodward, we offer the area’s widest variety of payment plans and will tailor a plan that allows you to plan for tomorrow within your budget. One of our directors can meet with you at your home or at our funeral home to explain the various programs and answer any questions.
Once your pre-arrangements are made and on file, when the time of need arises, a call to our funeral home will enable us to proceed with what was planned. If you have already made arrangements with another funeral home, but would now prefer Woodward, we have a transfer program that insures your initial decisions are kept intact at Woodward. For further information about pre-planning, transfer of an existing plan, or for answers to your questions, simply give us a call, or complete and return the form below. (And, of course, there is no cost or obligation.)
