PREPLANNING A FUNERAL
We encourage people to come talk with us about preplanning for their funeral (or that of a family member) so we can explain the different options that are available. This meeting with a funeral director gives the family members the opportunity to ask questions, gather information, and explore their options. By preplanning there is less pressure to make decisions immediately, allowing information to be processed and assessed when people are in a better state of mind. This meeting can be as long as necessary to answer any questions that arise, and is often followed by another meeting “down the road” to ask more questions, or firm up arrangements. There is no charge for these meetings. They simply begin a dialogue between family members and a funeral director for informational purposes.
Anything that is decided upon during a prearrangement can be changed or cancelled at any time. We want to help families arrange a funeral that is special and appropriate for their loved one. We prefer to make prearrangements by appointment as this ensures we alot enough time to address all your concerns. Please call our office at 973-627-1880 to schedule a meeting with a funeral director.
For people who are interested in preplanning and prepaying for a funeral, we are associated with the New Jersey Prepaid Funeral Trust Fund. All money that is prepaid for funeral expenses is made out to the New Jersey Prepaid Funeral Trust Fund and is 100% trusted, which means that the funeral home cannot use the money prior to your death. Any interest that is accrued in a Revocable Trust Fund belongs to the family. Please visit the New Jersey Prepaid Funeral Trust Fund website for specific details or feel free to call our office. Remember, we do not charge for this.
