Providing for a funeral & Cremation

Providing for a funeral & Cremation

Few people have the resources to pay for immediate end of life expenses on such short notice.

If you rely on your friends and family to pay for your immediate end of life expenses, you may be leaving behind more than heartache. Without providing a plan in advance, the ones you love most may need to reach into their savings accounts, use credit cards, take out a loan, or even sell personal assets in order to pay for your final expenses. 

All too often, money set aside in savings accounts may be subject to early withdrawal penalties, become tied up in probate or be depleted by long-term care expenses or nursing home fees.

A wise choice to protect your loved ones is to meet with our specialists well in advance and establish a plan for your immediate final expenses with a funeral insurance policy/certificate (“policy”) exclusively offered through our firm and its partners.
