A death has occurred, leaving a family member or friend to make all the difficult decisions of arranging a funeral. Coping with the loss of a loved one is always difficult. Most have little idea of what is involved, what the costs are, and, most importantly, what final arrangements the deceased would have wanted. But this situation can be easily avoided by making your funeral arrangements ahead of time.
In short, Jewish funeral pre planning relieves this burden from your family. When a loved one dies, the anxieties and stress of making funeral arrangements can be an overwhelming emotional responsibility. In addition, the costs involved can leave a tremendous financial burden on your surviving family members.
In New York State 100% of the money from pre-funded funerals must be placed in a FDIC account. Funds are placed in U.S. Government Securities, FDIC insured bank accounts, certificate of deposits, money market funds, and other investments permitted by law in a bank within the State of New York.
The funeral directors at Sherman's Flatbush Memorial Chapel, Inc. will guide you through all phases of Jewish funeral pre planning in Brooklyn, so that when the time comes, all your family will have to do is make a telephone call to us. All of your final wishes will be carried out.
If you are applying for financial assistance under SSI/Medicaid, you can pre-pay for all funeral expenses. The law allows you the opportunity to pay for the funeral before using all your assets.
How do you want to be remembered? Maybe you had a long career in the military that you'd like to celebrate. Maybe you love animals and would like to encourage donations in your memory to your local humane society. When you pre-arrange your funeral, you put your wishes on paper so that your loved ones will know exactly how to celebrate your life and honor your memory.
Did you know that there are more than 70 details that need to be tended to in the first 24 hours after a death? Are your loved ones ready for all that responsibility?
When you pre-arrange, you make those first 24 hours easier for your loved ones. You also save them money. The stress of making last-minute funeral arrangements often causes people to make unnecessary purchases. By taking care of the arrangements yourself, you free them from spending more than they need too.
Like most things, funeral costs tend to rise every year. That means that a funeral today will probably cost less than the same funeral three or four years from now. Paying for your funeral now will save your loved ones money when you pass on.
Pre-arrangement takes the guess work out of funeral planning. When you pre-arrange your funeral, everyone benefits. You know that your wishes will be carried out and your loved ones know exactly how to honor you.
