A parting gift to your loved ones: Plan your funeral for them.

Give something to your family and friends, even after you’re gone. Not only does planning funeral services in advance let you think out how you’d like to be remembered, it takes a huge burden off your loved ones during one of the hardest times of their lives.

Forethought® Funeral Planning is offered through a network of more than 5,000 funeral homes nationwide, so you can find Forethought products at a funeral home near you.

Planning and funding your funeral before the need arises can benefit you because it:

  • Provides peace of mind for you and your family
  • Reflects your expressed wishes
  • Pays a death benefit that helps cover funeral costs according to your prearranged funeral agreement to help minimize financial burden on your family

A preneed life insurance policy or annuity contract provides the proceeds to pay for your funeral in full, according to the arrangements you make with your funeral home at the time you enter into a prearranged funeral contract. Over a million people have planned and funded funeral arrangements through their local funeral homes with Forethought Funeral Planning. Have peace of mind and plan ahead.

It’s a simple four-step process.

  1. Make funeral preferences known by contacting a local funeral professional who is a member of the Forethought Funeral Planning NetworkSM. Click here to find one.
  2. Arrange to set aside funds for your funeral with a whole life insurance or annuity product from Forethought.
  3. At the time of need, your selected funeral home will provide all services and merchandise designated in your prearranged funeral agreement, locking in today’s costs.
  4. Proceeds from your Forethought policy may be paid directly to the funeral home.
