Planning Ahead

Why plan ahead for a funeral?

Preplanning funerals has become increasingly popular. An estimated 4.5 million people will have made these important arrangements by the year 2000. Planning a funeral offers not only security but also peace of mind- it relieves you and your family from an unexpected financial burden, plus family members will not have to make additional difficult decisions at an already difficult time. The Andrew D. Ferguson Funeral Home also offers the Family Protection Plan as an added benefit to any pre-arrangement.

What is the Family Protection Plan?

We will extend protection to the family of any adult that pre-arranges his or her own funeral with Andrew D. Ferguson Funeral Home.

Who is protected?

Any unmarried children, grandchildren, or great-grandchildren under the age of 18 years old are protected.

How long are they protected?

The protection is in force during the life of the person who has the pre-arrangements and as long as the pre-arrangements are still with the Andrew D. Ferguson Funeral Home.

What is provided by this protection?

If the death occurs of a child that is protected, Andrew D. Ferguson Funeral Home will provide services and merchandise equal to the value of the services and merchandise selected on the pre-arrangement of the adult for free. The family must select Andrew D. Ferguson Funeral Home, or a church, as the location of the funeral, and Andrew D. Ferguson Funeral Home will conduct and provide the services and merchandise.

What does pre-planning involve?

However you would like your funeral, the Andrew D. Ferguson Funeral Home can help you through the steps to making your final arrangements.

  • Arranging the kind of funeral you would like to have
  • Choosing a casket, vault or urn
