Mortuary & Funeral Home Most Common Frequently Asked Questions
Mortuary & Funeral Home Most Common FAQs
What is the significance of a cremation or funeral service?
Many experts agree that the benefits of a service are for those who remain behind. A “closure” of sorts must occur to help survivors adjust to their loss and recognize that a death has occurred. A cremation or funeral service provides the opportunity for friends and family to celebrate the life that was lived and allows the healing process to begin.
How much does a funeral or cremation cost?
Funeral or cremation costs vary depending on the funeral home and type of services and merchandise selected. There are two types of costs associated with a funeral: (1) services provided by the funeral home and (2) merchandise such as a casket or urn.
What methods may I use to pay for the funeral or cremation service?
Funeral or cremation costs may be paid by cash, check, VISA, MasterCard or an assignment of verified insurance benefits. Many families choose easy payment plans available through pre-planning of funeral or cremation services. This important decision can limit or eliminate the financial burden when the death of a loved one occurs.
Can I pre-plan and make my cremation or funeral arrangements before I pass?
Yes, pre-planning of funeral or cremation services is one of the most caring things you can do for your family or loved ones. It provides them with a clear picture of your final wishes and relieves them from having to worry about how you would really prefer to be remembered.
Can a funeral home assist me with Social Security benefits and Veteran death benefits?
Yes. In fact, our staff is trained to complete all necessary paperwork to begin the benefits process and will follow through to ensure that the benefits are secured in a timely manner to help pay for a cremation or funeral service.
