The Benefits of Planning Your Funeral in Advance

At Gutterman’s & Gutterman Warheit, we bring more than 125 years of experience to Jewish families in New York and Florida. We’ve witnessed first-hand the challenges people face when no prior funeral plans have been set up. We believe that establishing a Pre-Plan is the best gift you can give your loved ones, and that it has significant benefits for you as well.

We can help you understand your options with respect to preplanning and will work with you to put a Pre-Plan in place that meets your needs. To learn more, contact our office online or call us at one of the numbers below.

Why You Should Consider Setting Up a New York Pre-Plan

A pre-planned funeral contract offers a range of benefits to you and your survivors:

  • You’ll have the peace of mind that comes from knowing that all your needs are taken care of.
  • You’ll be able to lock in current prices for goods and services, and you’ll free your loved ones from worrying about how to pay for everything.
  • You will have control over the process and the service—you’ll be able to create a meaningful funeral service and your loved ones won’t have to try to guess about what you wanted.
  • Your survivors will be free to focus their energy and attention where they need to be—on grieving.

If you are a resident of both New York and Florida, it’s a good idea to consult your tax advisor or an attorney, so that you determine the best place to set up your pre-need or Pre-Plan contract.

What You Can Expect from Us When You Enter Into a New York Pre-Plan Contract

When you work with us to put a New York Pre-Plan contract in place, your account will be administered by the New York State Funeral Directors Association and supervised by the state. You’ll have your own account, in your name, and it will be FDIC-insured. If your contract is revoked, for any reason, you will receive a full refund of all money deposited into the account, with interest accrued. You can also enter into an irrevocable contract, which will comply with state SSI/Medicaid requirements.

Let Us Help You Prepare in Advance
