Why Preplan

Making funeral arrangements beforehand gives you time to consider all your options and truly plan a service that’s unique to you. If you’re still on the fence, below are a few more reasons why preplanning is a good option.



It's Simple

It’s as simple as completing a form or meeting with one of our per-planning counselors to put your plan in place. No matter your age, anyone can preplan, and you can make changes to your revocable pre arrangements whenever you wish.

You Relieve the Burden

Preplanning relieves your family of that burden, so they can focus on grief and remembrance.

You’re in Control

When you preplan, you’re in control of creating a unique celebration of life. You also can include your family members in the planning, so the service reflects their wishes and needs as well.

There are Prepay Options

One hundred percent of your prepayments are deposited into either a life insurance policy or into a trust fund where they will remain until they are needed. Prepaying gives your family members peace of mind.


Legacy Pre-Planning Center was founded to provide families with complete and comprehensive options to fund a pre-planned funeral. Through our partnership with the Vander Plaat Memorial Home of Paramus, we help you choose the funding product that best fit your budget to cover the cost of funeral expenses. Our commitment is to educate you so that you can move forward with a pre-planned arrangement that is custom tailored to your unique situation.

Our staff of highly trained pre-planning counselors are experts in providing you with the information and options to guide you on all aspects of the funeral process. When funeral services are needed, knowing that you have a plan in place can be very comforting during a difficult time.
