Cremation Pre-Planning

Planning Ahead Gives You the Time to Do It Right

When you are calm and free from the pressure of a loved one’s passing, you are able to make much better decisions concerning cremation services. That is why now is the best time to sit down with one of our staff to plan the final salute to the deceased. We can review all of the options available to you to make sure you and your family will achieve the inner peace that the cremation services should provide.

Benefits of pre-planning your cremation

  • Pre-planning relieves your family of the burden of painful decisions at a time of stress.
  • Pre-planning provides peace of mind in knowing that your wishes will be taken care of and everything is financially secured in advance.
  • The security of your funds is guaranteed.
  • All arrangements can be canceled at any time.
  • Medicaid spend down is placed in an irrevocable trust.

To assist you in the planning process, we have a cremation pre-planning checklist that we help you complete. We answer your questions on benefits, assist you in selecting, provide insight on monuments and markers. We also review the advantages of advanced payment, work with you to straighten out your affairs, and prepare a permanent document that specifies your desires in detail. Additional benefits of pre-planning include:

  • Guaranteeing the safety of your investment
  • Providing you peace of mind knowing everything is in place
  • Keeping biographical information with us helps your survivors recall all the key details of your life when their minds are stricken with grief
  • Pre-paying options that relieve your family of the pressure of wondering how they are going to pay for the cremation service at the time of death.
  • Understanding Medicaid guidelines which enable you to have a spend down placed in an irrevocable trust

Contact us now, while these important concerns are on your mind. We will be glad to sit down with you to arrange the cremation services for your loved one. We can meet with you at Cremation Society of Greater Cincinnati or at your home. You can then be sure everything will take place just as you wished.
