We’re doing our best to make it simple for you to get your affairs in order. These forms are here for your use, free of charge. Making decisions when you’re not under pressure and taking the time to fill out your funeral planning forms can save your family a tremendous amount of stress – not to mention thousands of dollars when the time comes.
A simple one-page document called a Disposition Authorization form allows you to authorize your choice of cremation or burial and allows you to indicate your wishes for your final resting place. Print the form, complete and sign it, and keep it with your important papers. Be sure to discuss your wishes with your loved ones and let them know where your original documents are filed.
If you wish to name a specific person to direct your funeral arrangements, you may wish to execute a Designated Agent form. A Designated Agent is similar to a power of attorney but for funeral arrangements. This form is useful for those who may wish to have a non-family member, such as a good friend, oversee their cremation or burial arrangements.
