Question: Replacing the Fuel Filter

I was told the fuel tank needed to be dropped in my car in order to replace the fuel filter, which is scheduled to be replaced at 60,000 miles for my car. I was told this was going to cost a lot to drop the tank and I might as well replace the fuel pump while they're down there. Is this true? Should I wait until the fuel pump fails to do this?
