One of the most caring, loving things you can do for your family is to leave detailed information, which would enable them to confidently arrange a funeral that fulfills your wishes.
Making funeral arrangements at a time of loss can be extremely difficult for those left behind. When the funeral, and sometimes the even payment have been arranged in advance, most of the decisions have been made, sparing uncertainty and confusion at a time when emotional stress may make decisions difficult.
Would it be better in your situation to plan ahead, calmly and sensibly, when you are in a normal mental and physical state, when you have full ability to reason, and when you are able to discuss arrangements with your family?
Making pre-arrangements can be as simple or as detailed as you wish. It can be pre-funded or not pre-funded. You can make the decision of many details including the service, merchandise and music…or simply record information that will ne needed for legal forms and other paper work.
Preplanning and prefunding a funeral has many benefits. Not only will it ensure that the funeral will reflect an individuals wishes, but it will also remove any additional stress on family and friends by taking care of the financial aspects surrounding a funeral.
For individuals “spending down” for SSI / Medicaid eligibility, preplanning can help you plan and pay for the funeral of your choice before assets are reduced to SSI / Medicaid levels.
At Holmdel Funeral Home, we take the utmost care in helping families preplan their funerals. All monies are placed in C H O I C E S - the New Jersey Prepaid Funeral Trust Fund, one of the largest funeral trust funds in the United States, in an FDIC insured account – so you can be sure your money is safe and secure. The interest that accrues acts as an aid toward inflation for future cost increases.
