Pre-Arrangements

While preplanning is a thoughtful gesture, it is also practical. It allows you to make unhurried informed decisions while your emotions are at rest. It requires you to organize your important documents so your survivors will have the information they need, and so insurance or other benefits due you won't be overlooked. If you choose to invest in a prepayment plan, you not only protect against the higher costs tomorrow may bring, you also assure funds will be available when they're needed most.

Advance planning allows you to choose a reasonable budget and permits you the option to set aside the funds over a period of time. Funds set aside against future cost are held in a state-approved trust account or top-rated insurance company until required. There is no charge for making prearrangements, and many families simply prefer to record this vital information for future use.

Our family is here to serve your family, as we have been for over 125 years. You can trust Munz-Pirnstill to fulfill all of your final wishes.
