Emotional Benefits

Financial Benefits

  • By prepaying funeral expenses in advance you guarantee that their will be no further costs to the family for funeral home services and merchandise at the time the service is provided.
  • New York State has the strongest consumer laws in the country with respect to prepaid funerals. Every penny (100%) of your money must be placed in to a revocable funeral trust making certain that these funds will be available when needed. The funds always remain yours meant that you can, at any time retrieve your money, with interest, at no cost to you.
  • Medicaid Planning – Many families today are faced with the need to plan for Long Term Care for a family Member. As a part of that planning, a pre-paid funeral account can be set up in a Irrevocable Funeral Trust. This allows a family to have funeral pre-paid and their family member still be eligible for Medicaid benefits.
