Alternative Way to Save on Cremation

pre planning funeral costsWhen you look at the rising funeral and cremation costs, you will find that passing away can get expensive. The financial set back that this will give to your family can become an additional burden, considering that they have to deal with their grief. One way to prepare for the financial aspect of dying is to avail of the pre-planning packages that funeral homes are offering. While this route can make the funeral expenses easier to meet, it is also without hitches or risks. You have to read the fine print so you or your family will not be caught off-guard later that certain services are not even covered. Worse, you may be left without recourse if the funeral home would close shop before you pass away. Either way, the costs will still be charged to your own pocket.

One way of not having to spend for your cremation is to donate your body to scientific studies. By doing this, you will be giving medical doctors and researchers the opportunity to learn more about life-threatening diseases and maybe contribute to the finding of treatments. In return these organizations will often pay for your cremation and you will leave this world knowing you have done your part to help with their research.
