Many unions throughout New Jersey offer their employees added protections and benefits in the workplace. Several industries offer union memberships, to which employees pay into throughout their tenure at the company. When someone has been in a union, they often have funeral benefits that can be utilized to help cover the expenses of a funeral
Union member funeral credits
Union members are often offered funeral credits as a benefit from their time in the union. At Memorial Properties, we are proud to work with union members and their families to accommodate any and all needs for their funeral arrangements. Union members all over the state of New Jersey choose Memorial Properties for their funeral arrangements because of our attention to detail and our experience working with unions all over the state.
The first step in planning a union member’s funeral is checking with a union representative to see what credits, if any, are offered to the deceased. Even if families do not think the deceased is entitled to any benefits, it is always important to check and confirm. Many families are surprised at what credits are actually dispersed for union members. The next steps go along our normal funeral process. We ensure the deceased’s wishes are completely met and allow the family to fill in any missing details necessary if pre-planning did not take place. There are so many unique options for burials and rituals, and Memorial Properties takes pride in crafting the perfect service for each family.
Pre-planning for union member death
Making arrangements for burials and funeral prior to death is not something people particularly look forward to doing, but it is extremely important. Unfortunately, funerals have become quite costly in recent years. Pre-planning for death is something that many families fail to do even though it can relieve an extensive amount of stress when a loved one dies. Pre-planning allows your family peace of mind as they are in the grieving process, rather than worrying about every single arrangement that needs to be made. Pre-planning also ensures your exact wishes are followed upon your death and eases the financial burden of death.
Union members should reach out to their union representative as a part of the pre-planning process to learn more about the burial and funeral credits that may be available to them at their time of death to ensure these benefits are leveraged.
