Pre-Payment Options

Making Preplanned Or Prepaid Arrangements

During our lives we plan for many situations; education, having a family, vacations, weddings and especially our retirement. However, many neglect to plan their funeral as it is a realization of our own mortality. We purchase insurance to help us in situations that may happen, such as accidents, earthquakes, fire, floods and theft. We should also consider the pre-planning of our funeral service as it not only lets our survivors know what our wishes are, but it will also help our families through their time of bereavement resulting from our death.

Peace of mind is really what planning is all about. It's knowing that both the financial and emotional needs of those close to you will be met once you are gone.

When you are making your plans for funeral arrangements, consider the feelings and needs of your family members. Imposing certain restrictions in your pre-arrangements, could cause hardship on the survivors.

What is a Pre-Paid Pre-Arrangement?

We simply record your wishes down on paper, collecting personal information, your choices, and selections and keeping them on file in our facility until the time of death. When death occurs, one call to Squamish Funeral Chapel is all that is needed to begin the funeral process. Your funeral director will carry out all the arrangements according to your wishes, and benefits from your pre-payment plan will be paid directly to the funeral home. This removes the burden from your family and you will have the piece of mind ahead of time knowing your arrangements were taken care of, for those you love - at today's prices - not tomorrow's.

What are the benefits of pre-planning?

  • You are able to make rational and logical decisions.
    Saving your family the burden of having to make them under times of grief and stress.
  • The assurance that your wishes are known and will be carried out as specified and obtain piece of mind.
    You have the opportunity to discuss options with our funeral professional and also with your family, church, friends, etc.
  • It will not be a financial burden on your family.
    You can select the services and merchandise according to your wishes, spiritual beliefs as well as for your financial means, either by pre-paying for the services or having the monies set aside.

What is involved in making pre-arrangements?

  • Recording personal information that is required for Vital Statistics.
    This consists of full name, address, spouse's name, occupation, birth date, birthplace, parent's names and their birthplaces and your next of kin or executor.
  • Making service choices.
    Funeral or memorial service, burial, cremation, entombment or transfer to another city, music selections, personalized memorial service folder, video presentation, participants (family and/or friends) to create a meaningful service.
  • Making specific selections.
    The selection of a casket or cremation container, an urn, a burial or urn vault, and a monument or memorial marker.
  • Arranging a payment plan.
    You can pay all at once in a single payment, or you can pay over one, three, five, or even ten years. Your costs will be guaranteed not to increase if payment is made at one time or by monthly payments.

It is a good idea to,
Leave your requests flexible enough to allow survivors
to make appropriate arrangements for the fulfillment of their emotional needs
