Taking Control of Your Funeral
Advance funeral planning is referred to as “prearranging,” “preplanning” or “preneed.” It’s a simple process that can take as little as an afternoon.
People who preplan can:
*Choose a remembrance that reflects their personal wishes,
*Provide funds to carry out their plan,
*Better position themselves for Medicaid Eligibility, and
*Offer guidance to family and friends who will need help with difficult decisions at a stressful time.
Through our Funeral Planning CHOICES program, the NJSFDA offers two prepaid funeral funding options available through participating funeral homes. They are: the New Jersey Prepaid Funeral Trust Fund, and Sure Trust Funeral Insurance Administration Trust.
