Frequently Asked Questions about Pre-planning
How Will Pre-Planning Benefit My Family?
This Advance Plan removes the decision-making burden from survivors by allowing you to make your own personal choices well in advance of the time of need. Your loved ones will not have to pay for your funeral expenses at the time of your death when you’ve pre-selected, pre-signed, and pre-paid for your funeral arrangements.
What About Future Costs Increasing?
The Plan makes sure that the costs of your “Goods and Services” are guaranteed not to increase for you.
What If I Don’t Die At Home?
There is another low cost, worldwide travel plan available.
What If I Move Away From This Area?
The plan is transferable because the funds are secured for you in a unique insurance product designed for advance funeral planning.
What if I Want To Make Changes In The Future?
Your Advance Funeral Plan is a living document. You can make changes at any time.
How Much Interest on the Payment Plans?
There is no interest on this pre-paid funeral plan. If a person wishes to make payments then insurance fees will be paid.
What If I Die Before the Payments Are Completed?
If you answer “NO” to both health questions, your plan is paid off at the time of your death. If you answer, “YES” to any of the health questions, you will receive partial coverage as outlined on the application. If death is caused by an accident, 100% of your pre-funded funeral plan is paid for, regardless of the original answer to the health questions.
How Will This Affect My Estate?
The Plan is generally made irrevocable to protect you from government attachment. SSI cannot consider this an asset and there is no luxury or estate tax on the plan.
What If the Mortuary Goes Out Of Business?
Your Plan is protected by the Insurance Company and can be transferred to a place of your choice.
