為什麼要生前契約 Why Plan Ahead?

 

這很容易。

 

您可以花一點時間,按照您的喜好制定您所最需要的計劃,您只需要填寫一份表格,或約見我們的工作人員了解詳細信息,任何人在任何地點都可以制定計劃;如果您需要,您可以在今後的任何時候都可以對您的計劃作更改。

 

讓您決定想要以何種方式被緬懷。

 

生前契約允許您在百年後按照您本人的意願制定只屬於您本人的、獨一無二的人生終場宴會,讓您的生命得到尊重;該計劃對您的家人同樣極具意義,幫助他們明白您的所需所求,了解到無論生死你們的心都緊緊相連在一起。

 

生前契約同樣能夠幫助您的家人和親友減輕負擔。

 

當所愛之人離世,家人不得不以悲傷的心境來作出諸多決定,當您事先已準備安排好一切事項,這一舉動將大大減輕他們的心理負擔,給予他們更多撫平傷痛的時間;他們也無需問自己是否有做出正確的決定,而是能夠將眼光著重於當下的問題,讓最關心您的人可以為您舉行一場隆重的告別儀式。

 

生前契約賦予您預先支付葬禮費用的資格。

 

雖然預先支付葬禮費用並不是必需的,但該計劃卻可以讓您的資金被安全保存在一個賬戶中,防止因通貨膨脹和不可預見的成本增長而引起費用上調,使您的家人不用擔心付款的問題,充分享受因生前契約所包含的便利而帶來的心靈安寧。我們很樂意為您提供更多相關信息,幫助您更合理地來安排這筆資金。

 

如果我更換了居住地點該怎麼辦?

 

一旦您與我們制定了生前契約,我們將會把您的相關資料和最終的意願保存至檔案中;如果您更換了居住地點,您的檔案能夠很容易地轉移到美國的任何一家殯儀館。因此無論什麼時候、在哪家殯儀館需要啟用這份計劃,我們都會確保您的計劃始終跟隨您左右。

 

我該如何開始申請?

 

首先請您查閱我們的預計清單,我們將會幫助您考慮所有的可能性、收集所有您所需要了解的信息;然後您可以使用我們預計的形式開始創建只屬於您的個性化安排;您還可以與我們聯繫,安排一個時間,讓我們的工作人員來幫您選擇以及規劃您的生前契約。

 

 

It's easy.
You can take your time creating arrangements that best suit your needs and preferences, and all you have to do is fill out a form or meet with a member of our staff to put your plan in place. Anyone can create a plan, at any stage in their life, and you can make changes at a later date if you wish.

It lets you decide how you'd like to be remembered.
Creating your own unique life celebration allows you to make sure that your wishes and desires are respected upon your passing. However you decide to be memorialized, pre-planning and preparation gives you control over the personal decisions that must be made when a person moves on from this life. Planning can be meaningful for your family, as well, if you choose to include them in the process. It can help them to feel connected to you both in life and in death, knowing that your arrangements reflect exactly what you envisioned them to be.

It takes the burden off of your family and friends.
When a loved one passes, the family faces an overwhelming number of tasks and decisions, all while struggling through grief and a range of difficult emotions. By taking care of your arrangements before the time of need, you’re relieving them of that burden and giving them more time and energy to focus on healing and remembrance. They won’t have to ask themselves, “Am I making the right choices?” and can instead focus on what matters: saying goodbye and celebrating your life journey with those who cared about you most.

It gives you the ability to pre-pay, if you wish.
While pre-funding your funeral is certainly not required in order to pre-plan, pre-payment means that your funds will be set aside and protected against inflation and unforeseen increases in cost. Your family won’t have to worry about payment, and can enjoy peace of mind knowing that everything has been taken care of. We’d be happy to provide you with more information and help you arrange for pre-funding of your services.

What if I Move?
Once you create your pre-plan with us, we store it in our files as a record of your final wishes and decisions. Your plan is easily transferable to any funeral home in the United States, so it can be used wherever you might choose to relocate. No matter where you live at the time of your passing, or which funeral home’s services you decide to use, we’ll make sure that your plan follows you there.

Where Do I Start?
The first step is to review our Pre-Planning Checklist to help you consider all of your possibilities and gather all of the information you’ll need. Then, you can use our Pre-Planning Form to begin creating your personalized arrangements. You can also contact us to schedule a time to meet with a member of our staff to discuss your options and design your plan in person.
