Union Worker Burials in New Jersey

Compassionate Burial Services for Union Workers in NJ

Many unions throughout New Jersey offer their employees added protections and benefits in the workplace. Several industries offer union memberships, 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. Being aware of the benefits that are available to you, along with your options when death occurs, are the best ways to ensure that both you and your family are prepared for the future and all stages of life.

At Memorial Properties, we have years of experience organizing the burial arrangements of union members in NJ, while helping to ensure that they have access to all the benefits offered to them by their unions. We ensure that all wishes for the service and burial are met, whether the union member is interested in in-ground burial, above-ground burial, or cremation. Along with our various burial options, we offer personalized burial programs and a comprehensive pre-planning service to ensure that all decisions made benefit both the individual and their family for years to come. Our ten peaceful final resting places throughout NJ give families a place to visit and remember their loved ones for the rest of their lives.

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 all needs for their funeral and burial 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 and burial 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 dispersed for union members. The next steps go along with our normal funeral and burial process. We ensure that 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.

Benefits of Burial Pre-Planning for Union Members

Making arrangements for burials and funerals before death is not something people particularly look forward to doing, but it is an extremely important step to take. 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. This, combined with the fact that funerals have become quite costly in recent years, indicates the immense benefits that a family can gain from pre-planning their arrangements. Pre-planning gives your family peace of mind as they are in the grieving process, rather than having to worry about every single arrangement that needs to be made. Pre-planning also ensures that your exact wishes are followed upon your death and eases the financial burden of death on your family.

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 that these benefits are leveraged. Being aware of these benefits ahead of time ensures that they can be put in place when they are most needed. Pre-planning at Memorial Properties also provides union members with additional benefits – those who pre-plan with us will receive a certificate of credit up to $1495 to put towards an above-ground space, in-ground interment space, or community bible niche at one of our locations in NJ. We encourage all those in NJ to pre-plan their arrangements because today’s wisdom is tomorrow’s peace of mind.
