Richard Buckley provided us with information on the options of preparing for your funeral. Preplanning for your final arrangements can relieve your grieving survivors of the burden of deciding what you would want. This information can be included in your will, but also inform your relatives of your wishes. But part of preplanning includes covering the cost of your arrangements. Saving funds in a trust can cover the cost of a funeral. A licensed funeral director can assist you in establishing a Prepaid Funeral Trust Fund. Richard shared two brochures on this subject: New Jersey Prepaid Funeral Trust Fund and SSI/Medicaid and Prepaid Funeral Arrangements. You can ask Richard for a copy of the brochures or this information is available at Richard shared that the cost of a funeral can be as much as $12,000, so preplanning for this expense is advisable. Richard then fielded entertaining questions to a serious slice of life and stories from our own experiences were shared.
