The matter of final arrangements should be something that you take into consideration when you are devising an estate plan.
Multiple decisions must be made, and if you don’t state your preferences in writing your family members could ultimately wind up disagreeing about things and a difficult time for them could become even more stressful.
It is possible to execute a document called an “authorization for final disposition.” With this authorization you can name someone who you would like to see taking care of the final arrangements.
When you do this everyone in the family will understand your wishes and your representative will be able to act without any resistance.
After naming a representative you can leave behind detailed instructions within the authorization for final disposition. This can include your choice between burial and cremation, your preferred funeral arrangements, and other details.
When you leave behind an authorization for final disposition you are doing everything possible to make things simple for your family at a difficult time in their lives.
There is indeed a lot to think about when you are preparing instructions regarding how you want your final arrangements handled. We recognize this and we have put together an informative free report on the subject that will answer a lot of your questions, and you can use this report as a guide.
