One of the documents that you may want to include in your estate plan is called an authorization for final disposition.
With this authorization, you name someone that you would like to empower to take control of your final arrangements after you pass away. You also record your wishes regarding the details.
There are a lot of things that must be done, and there are various decisions that must be made. One of them would be whether you want to be buried or cremated.
If you choose the former option, the place of burial will be something to consider. There is also the matter of the type of casket that you would prefer.
Caskets come in a wide variety of prices, and you place your family in a sensitive position if you don’t let them know how you feel about the casket.
The final services are another thing to take into consideration. You can state your preferences when you execute your authorization for final disposition.
Families sometimes disagree about the correct course of action when a family member who has passed away did not leave behind specific instructions.
When you include an authorization for final disposition among your estate planning documents, you achieve dual objectives. You make sure that your own wishes are carried out, but you also eliminate the possibility of disagreements among family members.
