How Preplanning Works

  • Purchaser selects desired services and merchandise while reviewing the General Price List.
  • Funeral director prepares a fully itemized statement and preneed agreement.
  • Both the funeral director and Purchaser sign the documents.
  • Purchaser submits a check for the cost of the funeral made payable to the funeral trust program. If cash is remitted, the Purchaser should obtain a cash receipt at the time of the transaction.

  • Purchaser receives copies of all signed documents and a General Price List for retention.
  • Within ten days, the funeral director forwards the funds to the funeral trust program. Our firm uses New York PREPLAN - the most secure program in the nation.
  • Within 30 days, the Purchaser should receive acknowledgment in the mail indicating that their funds have been deposited.
  • Funds are paid directly to the funeral director once the funeral services have been provided.
