What if your death occurred tomorrow?
Would your family know what to do? Would they know your wishes? Difficult decisions are more burdensome to make while grieving, and emotional overspending can often result. We understand this, and know that a simple way to make it easier for those we leave behind is with advance funeral planning and funding.
Heritage Funeral Home's professional, caring commitment to serving our community grows every day. We are proud to partner with the Selected Funeral Life Insurance Company located in Hot Springs, Arkansas. SFLIC shares this same commitment in helping you secure your wishes before the need arises.
What is Advance Planning? It is arranging for and selecting the type of funeral service and related merchandise before they are needed, often years before the death. We would be happy to visit with you, even in the comfort of your own home, explain the different options and answer any questions so you can make informed decisions.

What are the advantages?
Without a doubt, the most important reason to plan in advance is to spare your family the many difficult decisions at an emotionally trying time. Even the most sincere desire to create a meaningful tribute can result in emotionally driven overspending, and regretful decisions.
Peace of Mind
We all have thoughts and special wishes concerning our own funeral arrangements. Making plans early leave no difficult decisions for others, and provides you and your family the comfort to know everything will be taken care of.
If you choose to pay for your funeral in advance, the designated funds lock in today’s prices protecting your family from steadily rising costs. You have the added security of knowing that all funds are protected with SFLIC, a legal reserve life insurance company.
Don’t be mislead in thinking that the Veteran’s Administration, Medicaid or Medicare will take care of your final expenses. They will not. While they may pay a small cash reimbursement such as the $255 Social Security benefit for surviving spouses, beyond this, the entire financial burden will fall on your family.
Don’t Put It Off
Important decisions about your final wishes should not be made last minute in a hospital room, or on a hurried trip to the funeral home. Advance planning with Heritage Funeral Home can avoid this scenario. We encourage you to discuss this matter with your family, then call us for a no obligation, no pressure consultation, or sign our Guest Book to request more information. Please know we are just as committed to your family’s needs today, as we are when a death occurs.
