A growing trend in the U.S., pre-planning funerals offers peace of mind that comes from having your affairs in order. The funeral directors at Briscoe-Tonic Funeral Home can provide guidance in funding those arrangements with insurance coverage in advance. Immediate and considerable cost savings can be realized for those who qualify and understand the value of such a plan.

Who Qualifies for Funeral Pre-Planning?

Anyone up to the age of 99 years old may apply. There is no medical examination required.

What are the Advantages of Funeral Pre-Planning?

With pre-planning arrangements in place, you gain peace of mind in knowing that family and friends will not be financially burdened and your death arrangements will be handled according to your wishes.

Increase Death Benefits – Pre-planning helps to reduce the impact of inflation, which could otherwise increase the cost of your funeral.

Tax Free Value & Benefits – The plans offered through Briscoe-Tonic Funeral Home provide life insurance benefits that are exempt from federal income tax when paid to a named beneficiary. Neither the increasing value of the coverage nor the total benefits paid at the time of death are federal income taxable.
