Fill out a form or meet with a member of our staff to put your plan in place. Anyone can create a plan, at any stage in their life, and you can always make changes if you wish.
Preplanning lets you create your own unique life celebration. Including your family in the planning process can help them feel connected to you both in life and in death, knowing that your arrangements reflect your desires.
Preplanning relieves your family of that burden and gives them more time and energy to focus on healing and remembrance.
Prepayment generally means that you save money by being protected from inflation and price changes. We deposit all prepayments into an insurance policy where it remains until needed. Prepaying also provides peace of mind for your family, who won’t have to figure out your funeral expenses when the time comes.
The State of Ohio requires that your money be invested in an insurance policy or a prearrangement trust. It is illegal for any funeral home to co-mingle prearrangement funds with the business’ general operating funds. Diehl-Whittaker utilizes insurance policies because the application process is simple, you make monthly payments directly to the insurance company, and if you move, the policy can be easily moved to any funeral home in the United States. Best of all, after the initial limited benefit period, in the case of an untimely early passing, the total prearranged funeral cost is paid for, even if all the payments haven’t been completed.
First, check out our preplanning checklist to help you consider all your possibilities. Then you can preplan online using our form to create your personalized arrangements or you can schedule a time to meet with our staff to discuss your options and make a plan.
