Pre-arrangement is the planning of the details of a funeral before death occurs. While for some, the act of preparing for ones passing can be difficult, it is comforting to know that your wishes and the burden and expense of planning a funeral are taken care of.
Basically, all or part of a funeral can be pre-arranged. This includes the plot, casket, ceremony and the transportation. A funeral director can walk you through every alternative.
Another aspect of pre-arrangement is the task of making sure your affairs are in order. This involves identifying any insurance, finances and valuables you may have. Of course, you should have a will and other personal financial records easily available for your next of kin.
For some, the burden of the final expenses can be best handled before the actual death. Funds are put aside in a trust fund managed by the N.J. State Funeral Directors Association. The costs of the funeral is determined before the actual funeral, and once the death occurs, the funds are released.
