Planning Ahead

You'll feel more secure when your final arrangements reflect your personal wishes

Arranging a funeral, especially your own, probably hasn't been your top priority. But you'll feel more secure when your final arrangements reflect your personal wishes, knowing family and friends won't be burdened with decisions and expenses when they're least able to cope.

Without some sort of pre-planning, the people left to handle your final arrangements are forced to make hurried, emotionally stressful, and often costly decisions - all of which can make the loss even more difficult.

Personal Alternative now offers a special program to help you plan and now pre-fund all the details and costs involved.

It's Your Decision

You can use our online Advance Planning helper or you can call us for our complimentary Advance Planning Form.

To help you plan your final wishes, you can use our online Advance Planning helper or you can call us for our complimentary Advance Planning Form. Our website and advance planning forms outline in a matter-of-fact, common-sense way all the decisions you might want to make now - about the type of service and where you'd like it held, about choices such as burial or cremation, necessary vital statistic information, and any particular concerns or considerations you may have.

The original is returned to us and you keep a copy for your family or executor. You'll also receive a laminated wallet-size card giving our 24-hour phone number, and indicating your final wishes are on file.

Everything's Covered

Now, with the option of pre-paying your final arrangements, you can also benefit from our lower prices in the future.

With Personal Alternative, you're already saving from our common-sense, consumer friendly and lower overhead - none of the expense of maintaining overly elaborate facilities. Now, with the option of pre-paying your final arrangements, you can also benefit from our lower prices in the future. You can ensure funds will be available so your family and friends will be relieved of the financial burden.

Better still, the Personal Alternative program is able to fund ALL the costs associated with final arrangements - professional fees, casket, cemetery costs, clergy, forwarding remains fees, air carrier, restaurant celebrations, clergy and music fees, even flowers for the service. Unlike many restrictive trust plans promoted by some funeral homes, Personal Alternative offers pre-planning that considers everything and everyone, putting your wishes first.

Protected Funds

The funds are available for your final arrangements, no matter when and where death occurs.

Personal Alternative's pre-planning program can cover all funeral expenses because it's structured as a special policy underwritten by a leading North American insurer of funeral expenses. That also means you have the flexibility to assign the fund's pay-out to your estate or directly to Personal Alternative. Even if you change your mind later, the money can be left to whomever you wish, at no additional cost. Because the Personal Alternative plan is protected by a major international insurer, the funds are available for your final arrangements, no matter when and where death occurs.

To discuss pre-planning and our common-sense approach to final arrangements, call us anytime or make all arrangements online in the comfort of your home.
