The idea behind a funeral program is to pay for your funeral, but without having to pay a funeral home.
The process is a little more complicated than you’d think, because many funeral homes require you to pay to have a casket delivered, which can cost upwards of $20,000.
If you want to find a program that can help you pay your cremation and funeral, we’ve gathered some tips on how to pay and what you need to do to set up your account.
Here’s a list of funeral homes and cremation services we’ve looked into to help pay your family’s funeral:1.
Contact funeral directors to set expectations:For many funeral directors, they’re the gatekeepers of the funeral business.
They’re the ones who decide whether your family wants to pay.
They also know what type of funeral they’re hosting, so they know what types of services they’ll be providing.
If you don’t want to pay, then contact them to set a time frame.2.
Find a funeral director who can help with payment:The most important thing to remember about paying for a funeral is that you don`t have to pay until your body is buried.
The funeral director will help you set a payment schedule and make sure that the cremation fees are paid.
They’ll even help you create a bill of sale so that you can keep track of what you owe, so that they can keep tabs on your finances.3.
Ask for a copy of your funeral bill:Many funeral directors will send a copy to you, or you can use the online Funeral Service Directory to find one that you trust.4.
Pay your cremations and burial fees:For cremation, your funeral director can make arrangements to pay you directly to your crematorium.
You may be able to get your crematory cremated by the funeral director, but you can’t make it to the crematorium until the crematory has received your cremated remains.
For burial, you’ll need to pay by credit card.
There are some funeral homes that accept credit cards, but many don’t, and some credit cards require you have a credit card or you have to be a resident of the state where the funeral is being held.
You should also contact your state funeral director for information on funeral home payments.5.
Make sure you get your final payment:Once your family is gone, there’s no need to wait to get paid.
The day after your body’s buried, your cremator will pay for cremation.
That will cost you money to transport, the cremated material, and the costs of the burial.
If the funeral home is having trouble paying, contact them immediately and get a refund.6.
Check your credit report to make sure you’re on the right page:If you’ve already been paid and your account has not been frozen, then you may not be able a refund or any other forms of compensation for the funeral.
Contact the funeral directors in your state to make arrangements.7.
Set up a funeral account:There are a few different ways to set an account up for a family’s cremation or burial, depending on the type of business you run.
You can set up an account with a bank, a credit union, or a business partner, which will allow you to make payments on your account, but then the money you pay in will go toward your business expenses.
You can also set up a bank account to make direct payments to your business partners, but those accounts are not available for use until the business is closed.
The funeral directors we spoke with all recommend setting up a personal account to pay funeral expenses and also to pay taxes on funeral proceeds.
If your business is a nonprofit organization, you can also use a non-profit organization as a business account.
If there’s not enough money in the account to cover your business fees, you could try opening an estate account.
