Funeral Pre-Planning Form
Preplanning a funeral allows an individual to make specific choices for a funeral service based on personal preferences. It ensures peace of mind, and relieves the individual's loved ones of a decision-making process at a stressful time. Preplanning also sets aside funeral funding so that the family will not have to deal with monetary considerations when a death occurs. Prepaying funeral costs can be financially beneficial by paying for a future funeral at today's costs.
~ SSI/Medicaid Funerals ~
"It was the judgment of Congress that persons should not have to choose between lifesaving welfare assistance and giving up their plan for the disposition of their bodily remains"
~ Spending Down for SSI/Medicaid ~
Prepaid funeral arrangements offer an applicant for financial assistance under SSI/Medicaid the opportunity to completely pay for the funeral of their choice before assets are used up for medical care and before their assets are reduced to SSI/Medicaid eligibility levels.
Effective January 1, 1997 - New York State law mandates that all contracts for prefunded funerals executed for applicants or for recipients of Medicaid be IRREVOCABLE.
