When it comes to end-of-life planning, many people find it too overwhelming to discuss. But leaving your loved ones to make all of the decisions after your death can fill them with anxiety and dread. When you consider the inevitable, that everyone is going to die someday, the more choices you make now, the better equipped your family will be to handle the expenses when you pass.
The Costs Add Up Quickly
Funeral costs can add up quickly, even if you go with budget-friendly options such as cremation. Without a final expense plan, families can struggle to cover even the basics. This can lead to sacrifices that your family should not have to make to cover your funeral expenses, such as:
- Taking out a second mortgage on their home
- Cutting into college tuition fees
- Picking up an additional job
- Extending their credit to the maximum
Death can bring about a range of emotions, from anger to sorrow. Adding financial stress to your family on top of it all can be heartbreaking. By planning ahead, you can support your family through all of it, just when they need you the most.
