Orange County, NY Pre-Planning Options

Pre-Planning Options

While most people do not want to think about their own mortality, the time to pre-plan your funeral is now. One primary advantage of pre-arranging your funeral is that it ensures that your funeral is carried out according to your exact wishes, allowing loved ones to bypass the task of second-guessing what you would have wanted. In addition, to relieve the burden on your loved ones at an already emotional time, the most thoughtful gifts you can give to your family are pre-payment and pre-planning. Orange County, NY area residents can trust Flynn Funeral & Cremation Memorial Centers Inc. for a number of options to help with these arrangements.

Pre-Payment Options

Pre-paying your funeral reduces the financial burden on your loved ones after your passing. We can coordinate a payment plan that suits your needs, from a single payment plan to monthly bank account withdrawals. Depending on your region, if your funeral costs less than the amount you have put aside, those funds will be refunded back to your beneficiaries. For more information on what is applicable in your region, simply speak to a member of our staff. Each year, thousands of people opt for pre-payment or pre-planning. Hudson Valley residents should be aware that these plans are designed to be flexible and can accommodate the many changes that often occur in people’s lives. Your funds are deposited in Orange County Trust Company, Inc., 91 Brookside Avenue, Chester, New York 10918 into an interest-bearing account that you have full control over at all times.

What You Can Do in Advance

  • Decide on burial or cremation and your casket or urn type.
  • Pick what type of service you want (religious, military, non-traditional).
  • Choose which funeral home to use.
  • Designate your pallbearers and pick any music or readings you want at your service.

Benefits of Pre-Planning

Between 70 and 75 decisions are made within the first 24 to 48 hours of death. It’s difficult to think rationally while making so many decisions within days of losing someone. Pre-planning gives you, your family, and your friends peace of mind, and it gives your loved ones direction as they attempt to respond to your wants and desires.

For residents of Sullivan, Rockland, Dutchess, and Orange County, NY, pre-planning and pre-payment may be a great option for you. For more information, we invite you to contact the staff here at Flynn Funeral & Cremation Memorial Centers Inc. or visit our Chester or Monroe, NY locations in person.
