Legal Forms Available Through NFDA FaxBack Now Even Easier to Use

imageThe National Funeral Directors Association?s (NFDA) popular FaxBack system ? a free, on-demand document service available exclusively as a benefit to NFDA members ? is now more convenient and easier to use than ever before. The association recently converted its comprehensive library of legal forms to Microsoft Word templates, allowing members to download the form they need, open the document on their computer, fill-in the necessary information and present a neatly printed copy of the form to a family representative for his or her signature.

NFDA?s comprehensive library of nearly 120 legal forms was developed by NFDA General Counsel T. Scott Gilligan and covers virtually every circumstance a funeral director might encounter when serving today?s families. Categories of available legal forms include: right of disposition; custody and transportation of remains; embalming, viewing, disinterment and donation; copyright; personal property; the Funeral Rule; cremation; employment; preneed trust; and at-need and preneed insurance.

In addition to legal forms, NFDA?s FaxBack system also provides a variety of other informational documents covering compliance, funeral customs, public relations, professional development, funeral service-related surveys, and NFDA membership and governance.

Legal forms and informational documents can be accessed online via the NFDA Website, www.nfda.org/faxback (NFDA members must be logged into the Website to view and download available FaxBack documents). NFDA members may also dial a toll-free number to have a hard-copy FaxBack document sent to their fax machine; instructions on how to access these forms via fax can be obtained from the NFDA Website (www.nfda.org/faxback; member login required) or by calling an NFDA member services representative at 800-228-6332.
