Preplanning a funeral is undoubtedly one of the biggest and most important decisions you will make in your lifetime. Whether it is for you or a loved one, the first step is obtaining all the necessary information to make an informed decision. Thousands of New Yorkers are choosing to preplan/prepay their funeral and burial expenses. In doing so, they recognize that it is smart financial planning and provides great emotional relief for themselves and their loved ones. Prepaying your funeral will allow you to make your own funeral plans, but, more importantly, preplanning will spare surviving relatives and loved ones from the emotional burden of having to make decisions at a time of great stress and grief.
Laws and regulations differ by state and conflicting information can make it difficult and confusing to make safe and trustworthy decisions about preplanning. New York State Funeral Directors Association is pleased to say without reservation that more than any other state, consumers in New York who prefund their funerals have their money protected by what are truly the strongest laws in the nation.
We commend you for your willingness to learn more about preplanning and prefunding a funeral. We hope that this information helps answer your questions about preplanning.
