Quinn-McGowen Funeral Home offers several options for planning and financing funeral services before the time of death. Anyone is welcome to simply choose services and merchandise in advance without financing until the services are rendered. This is an appropriate and loving way to ensure your wishes are documented. Documenting your wishes will relieve surviving family members from the task of guessing what your wishes may have been. Without pressure or obligation we will consult with you and provide full details of the options we offer concerning funeral pre-arrangements for yourself or your loved one.
Standard Preneed Funeral Trust
Under a Standard Contract, the consumer is putting some funds towards the provision of funeral goods and services. Although the consumer may express a preference about which goods and services he or she desires, no goods and services are actually purchased at this time. The consumer may also express his or her desires in order to determine how much his or her funeral would cost if held today. This amount is used solely to determine how much funding would be required were the funeral held today. Again, no goods and services are actually purchased with a Standard Contract.
Inflation Proof Funeral Services
Under an Inflation-Proof Contract, the consumer selects funeral goods and services and locks in the price of these items. The consumer may also select cash advance items including but not limited to grave opening and closing, honorariums, obituaries and out of town or shipping expenses; but, the cost of these items is not guaranteed.
Both Standard and Inflation-Proof Contracts can be made revocable or irrevocable and both can be funded with insurance or trust. In addition, both types of contracts may be funded with a trust, an insurance policy, or a combination of both.
