MORTON, IL / ACCESSWIRE / March 6, 2017 / Lifeguard Retirement Planning in Morton, Illinois, revealed that they recently began offering 30-minute informational sessions on questions people may have about paying for their funerals. The first two events took place on Tuesday, February 28 and Thursday March 2, 2017. Due to the popularity of the events based on robust attendance and significant interest in the topic, future events are currently being planned.
Richard Kirk with Lifeguard Retirement Planning says, "Families will have many decisions in the first 24 hours after death. Usually, these decisions are made under great pressure and sadness. Making one's preferences known removes the emotional burden so that family members are not left wondering whether they did the right thing."
He states that setting up a funeral trust along with one's personal preferences allows individuals to control their own funerals so that those end of life celebrations truly reflect the person. They allow individuals to organize family data to take the stress off family members who may not be sure where vital information is located and show a sense of responsibility by allowing individuals to make their own funeral decisions, taking that burden off family members during the grieving period.
Kirk says that knowing funds are available immediately inside a funeral trust to pay funeral costs is important. Money available from Social Security is just a fraction of the funds needed. "If you qualify, your loved ones will receive just $255 from Social Security to bury you," he states.
