What are the financial options involved with advance planning?

How much does a funeral service cost today, and how much might it cost in the future?

Over the last ten years, funeral costs have more than doubled, so it can be financially responsible to lock these services in at today’s prices.

Many funeral homes offer advanced planning assistance without obligation, and this information can be provided to you in person or sent to your home to review at your own convenience.

Consider these advanced planning options:

  • Many funeral homes help you prepare your wishes in writing and keep them on file at the funeral home, without having to pay.
  • An estimate can be obtained and you can prepay in advance, locking in the cost of the funeral at today’s price.
  • Different payment options exist (check with the funeral home) from term financing to credit cards.
  • Some Canadian provinces require advanced planning funds only be accepted by licensed funeral homes, and funds are placed with the Public Trustee or a trust company.
  • Prepayment is refundable any time upon written request.

McInnis and Holloway has investigated several options for arranging and financing funeral services, and have found the most flexible option.

It provides:

  • Simple enrollment.
  • Convenient payment plans to fit your budget.
  • A 30-day free look.

  • Easy, rapid claim service.
  • No tax liability on the death benefit.
  • Transferable throughout the world.
