2014-09-10 “Pre-Arrangement Funds”

Would you put $9,000 into a bank account and never check on the balance again?

Most of us would never think of doing such a thing.  Still, time and time again, that’s what consumers do when it comes to evaluating the funds that they have invested to cover their funeral expenses.   At the Blenheim Community Funeral Home, we welcome all owners of prepaid funerals to check-in from time to time and see how their investment is doing.  Every month we get updates from the institution that holds your pre-arrangement funds.  To find out how yours is doing is just a matter of a phone call.

Did you know that all prepaid funeral contracts entered into after July 1, 2012 must be guaranteed?  We were one step ahead of that here; we have always guaranteed our prepaid funeral contracts.

Did you know that you can transfer a prepaid funeral from one Funeral Home to another?  Transferring your pre-arrangement to us is your choice.  We will review your plan, take care of the transfer and ensure there are no fees to you.

For information on pre-arranged or pre-paid funerals, don’t hesitate to call.
