Is Financing Available for Cremation?

Video Transcript

Financing is available from a prearrangement standpoint. If someone chooses to prearrange their cremation service you can actually pay for that over time on a monthly basis which makes a lot of sense for a lot of our families today. When a death has occurred, there are no financing options available. Therefore, it makes a lot of sense to prearrange.

Answers from Other Funeral Directors Around the United States:

We do not allow for payment plans, but we do accept assignable insurance.

Unfortunately, financing is not available on an at-need basis. We do accept insurance consignments and offer financing on a pre-need basis.

It is possible with an insurance assignment. This may create additional fees at what may already be a difficult time. We do offer insurance assignments, but it is best to avoid such unneeded costs. If at all possible, then we try to direct families to pay their balances in full so they may receive all the benefits from insurances at a time when it will be most needed.
