NYSFDA & PrePlan: Partners in Success

As a current NYSFDA member funeral home, your dues cover a variety of benefits, including free monthly webinars, governmental affairs outreach, communication and information sharing, compliance guidance and support, and the opportunity to participate in PrePlan (an exclusive member benefit).

For more than 35 years, PrePlan has severed as the industry leader in preneed trust services. A significant reason for our success is our direct and close tie to the state association. Thanks to the sharing of information and resources, PrePlan staff are knowledgeable and well-versed in preneed trust compliance issues as well as the funeral services industry. We’re also able to stay up-to-date on critical legislative and regulatory issues that directly impact preneed trusts. Over the years, we’ve been able to successfully pass legislation to protect funeral directors as well as defeat harmful legislation. Most recently, the successful completion of the bill to make permanent the law prohibiting “pre-need funeral insurance” in New York State (signed into law by Governor Andrew Cuomo, December 2019). 

Additionally, PrePlan is governed by your peers – a group of Trustees and the FDSS Board of Directors (all NYS licensed funeral directors and members of NYSFDA) help guide our business affairs. They take their role seriously and always utilize the investment tools and guidance available in accordance with the law for the best interest of association members and the families you serve. 

And finally, NYSFDA’s enforceable Code of Ethics, which applies to all members of the association, sets member funeral homes apart. It sends a strong message to consumers that members take their responsibility to serve the public as funeral directors very seriously. As a PrePlan participating NYSFDA member firm, this Code of Ethics demonstrates your commitment to excellence and integrity.
