PreNeed and At-Need Funeral Planning
Taking Care of Your Family
We can help you plan.
Pre-arranging your own service will help to ease the burden of your loved ones. It will also alleviate any questions, problems or differences, which can occur among family members.
Pre-payment will protect you from the rising cost of prices, and it will not be a financial burden on your loved ones.
New York PrePlan™ Features:
- Your account is administered by the New York State Funeral Directors Association and supervised by the New York State Department of Health, Bureau of Funeral Directing.
- An individual account is held in the purchaser’s name, and insured by the FDIC.
- Revocable contracts are fully refundable to purchaser with all accrued interest.
- Irrevocable contracts can be written to comply with NY State regulations regarding SSI/Medicaid eligibility.
- Irrevocable contracts can be transferred to any funeral provider in the USA.
- The PrePlan™ account earns a very competitive rate of interest which enables us to guarantee the price of a funeral by using the interest to cover future increases in our costs.
Our directors are personally involved with each pre-arrangement. When allowing us to discuss pre-planning, you will be speaking with professional people who provide funeral services tailored to your specific needs. We can arrange for a confidential PrePlan conference, at your convenience, with a member of our staff. There is no charge and no obligation for this meeting.
PrePlan allows you to make all of your final arrangements ahead of time—including payment—so that the people who love you won’t have to. PrePlan makes preplanning simple and safe. This is how it works:
- You meet with our funeral director.
- You select the funeral and merchandise of your choice.
- You receive a fully itemized statement and preneed agreement.
- You give the funeral director your personal check.
- PrePlan funds are placed in FDIC-insured Certificates of Deposit. Each trust fund depositor is insured by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation.
- You receive a deposit acknowledgment after the account has been opened.
- Upon completion of your funeral, PrePlan sends the payment to the funeral director.
10 Reasons To PrePlan
All funeral home service charges, livery and merchandise items are price guaranteed as per the terms of the New York PRE PLAN contract.
New York State Law requires 100% of your money be deposited in a special trust fund. All accounts are fully insured to the extent permitted by law by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC).
You can make preneed funeral arrangements in our funeral home or in the comfort, privacy and security of your own home.
You decide now what type of arrangements you want and how much you want to spend… at a time when decisions will be made calmly and intelligently.
