Should I prepay my funeral? At the very least, you should pre-PLAN your funeral. Doing that takes decision-making at a very difficult time far easier for your family. In addition, prepaying your funeral will insure that money is set aside to pay for your final expenses. Properly set up, that money is protected from the costs of nursing home care. This subject should be discussed thoroughly with your estate planning attorney.
