    • The funeral will reflect your expressed wishes.

  • The funeral will not be a financial burden on your family.

Frequently asked questions:

  • Isn't Forethought funeral planning just for older people?

No, we believe enrollment in the Forethought program is a smart decision for anyone. Younger people often carry ordinary life and health insurance to protect their families in the event something happens, and that's wise. It's equally wise for them to take the next steps to arrange and fund their own funerals. By doing so, they relieve their loved ones of emotional and financial burdens when the need arises and enjoy the peace of mind that comes with having all their affairs in order.

  • Wouldn't I be better off to invest the money myself?

Invested money earns dividends or interest upon which income taxes must be paid. And there's no guarantee that the investment would keep pace increasing with funeral cost. With Forethought funeral planning, you have the assurance that there will be enough money to cover future costs, whenever the need arises, and you pay no tax on the increasing death benefit. Plus, you have the benefit of knowing all your plans are made so that your loved ones need make only one phone call to fulfill your funeral arrangements.
