Whether you are considering traditional burial or cremation, funerals consist of three parts. Services/Merchandise/Out of Pocket expenses (see chart). At the time of death, 125 things must be done immediately, adding to the stress of the situation. Categories to consider include: secure vital statistics, pay for some or all of the services and merchandise (up-front), collect required documents and permits, decide and arrange all the above within a few hours at both funeral home and cemetery locations. Pre-planning and pre-funding alleviate all of this (see videos under our resources page).
Up till now consumers have had three (non-funeral home) choices on how to pay or fund a funeral. There is final expense insurance, which provides funds for this event, but, there are pitfalls. Limited coverage, no control, and policies can lapse. Funeral pre-planning with a Burial or Cremation Society may seem like an attractive choice but merchandise is typically over inflated pricewise. Funeral Expense Trusts allow for specific amounts to be set aside, types of funerals to choose from, and no lapses (not to mention Medicaid friendly).
Research Indicates that many families, especially Christian families, prefer the spiritual comfort of having a funeral, including the visitation viewing, at a church. They feel that a church setting was more appropriate and comforting at the time of death than a funeral home setting.
