Many families plan for every aspect of life, such as education, vacations, birthdays, weddings and retirements. Each year more than one million people plan and pay for their final expenses ahead of time. This planning might involve your own funeral or the funeral of a family member. Preplanning ensures that your loved ones will not have to deal with difficult arrangements at the time of death. Loved ones can use that time to comfort each other, reflect and heal.
While preplanning is a thoughtful gesture, it is also practical. It allows you to make unhurried informed decisions. Preplanning requires you to organize your important documents so your survivors will have the information they need to properly provide for you. It also ensures that benefits such as insurance, social security and veterans, are not overlooked.
Advanced planning allows you to choose a reasonable budget for your funeral needs and allows you the option of setting aside funds over a period of time. Funds set aside against future costs are held in a state-approved trust account – the NJ Prepaid Funeral Trust Fund or top-rated insurance company until required. If you simply wish to make your choices in advance and keep them on file, we are happy to help you with this at no charge.
