Death is never a pleasant topic, but it is inevitable. Planning ahead for this transition has a number of advantages. It makes our wishes known and takes pressure off loved ones during a stressful time. Do we want to be cremated or buried in a casket? What kind of service do we want and where? It also allows us to comparison shop services and prices associated with a funeral.
Through our insurance partner, The Hartford, participants in the insurance programs of Pensions and Benefits USA (P&B) have free access to Everest—a nationwide funeral planning service. At Everest, persons can learn about the myriad details associated with funerals and compare prices of local providers. Participants can also create their own personal history and express wishes for their own funeral service.
