Does pre-paying funeral expenses make sense? Yes, for a number of reasons: (1) If you end up in a nursing home, the amount you have prepaid does not have to be spent on your nursing care, if you set it up properly; (2) that step takes the burden off your family of otherwise not knowing your wishes for your arrangements; and (3) it avoids your family over paying for your funeral.
