Planning Ahead with Your Funeral Home in NJ

Death is one of life’s few certainties. And while we know that we can’t prevent it forever, we can prepare for it. By putting measures in place in advance, we can make the mourning process easier on our loved ones both in terms of managing costs and arranging a proper funeral. Here are a few ways to plan ahead…

Pre-Pay for Your Funeral – Setting aside some additional money to pay for your funeral will ensure that they money is there when it is needed. It’s possible to arrange pre-payment with a funeral home in NJ to ensure that the money goes where it needs to go. A nice benefit of this plan is that, if you pay in advance, the costs will not rise with inflation, preventing the costs from escalating over time.

Accidental Death Insurance - If a loved one dies in an accident covered by insurance, their family will receive a financial benefit that will cover the cost of the funeral and other financial needs like mortgages, rent and living expenses.

Design Your Memorial Service in Advance – Funeral homes offer families the opportunity to prepare and pre-pay their funeral arrangements. This can include directions for religious ceremonies, readings, audio or video messages and more. Making your desires known in advance means that the strain of planning the memorial falls away from your loved ones and onto the capable shoulders of experienced funeral directors.

Preparing for Cremation or Burial – Arrangements for burial or cremation can be made in advance including the selection of a casket or an urn. Additionally, you can purchase a plot in a cemetery long before it is necessary.
