Pre-Funding

More and more people today are taking the time to discuss their funeral planning. Pre-planning your funeral only makes good sense.

It certainly makes it much easier for your family at the time of death. It also insures that your desires are considered and allows you to make difficult decisions unencumbered by the burdens of emotional stress that normally accompany a loss. Pre-planning allows you the time to talk, investigate, compare, and come to decisions that will meet your individual family needs.

There is no cost involved to meet with a funeral director, and it only takes a few minutes to discuss the basic information you will need to make an informed decision. Pre-arranging can be as simple as providing the funeral director with your name, address, and person to contact upon your death. It can be as thorough as planning every detail of your funeral and pre-paying the entire amount. It can also be somewhere in between. You are in total control. Our family and staff are here to carry out your desires.

Many people wish to complete the pre-arrangement by pre-funding their funeral cost. Pre-funding assures that all funeral expenses will be paid even if your estate is financially depleted and inflation has increased the expenses of funerals. At the present time, New York State has excellent consumer protection, pre-funding laws. Funeral directors are required to place all funds in an FDIC-insured account. No part of the principle or interest may be touched.

Scala & Roefaro Funeral Home, Inc., offers an inflation proof, FDIC insured, guaranteed plan that ensures that once the plan is funded, there will always be sufficient funds to cover the funeral home expenses.
