Planning Ahead

If you are planning for a death that is imminent (i.e., in a matter of days or weeks), click here for our Cost Calculator. Once you've personalized and priced your direct cremation, email yourself a customized, "Order Now" link so that you're ready when the death occurs.

If you are planning for the future, a funeral trust allows you to put aside money now to pay for your cremation when it's needed. This is an easy and popular way to make sure your needs and wishes are met when the time comes. (At this time, we are only offering trusts in Pennsylvania. If the state of residence of the person for whom you are planning is not PA, please check back, as we will be adding additional states in the near future.)

  • Lock it in!
    Pay now and your money will be placed into a trust account, earning interest as a hedge against inflation. That way, you'll always be sure to have the money you need when you need it.
  • Reduce Uncertainty and Stress
    Along with the money in trust, many opt to leave a written guide to be followed, eliminating stressful guesswork for those left behind.
  • Eliminate Financial Burden
    A trust is the perfect way to protect your loved ones from the financial burden of paying for your cremation. And it’s free of probate so you can use it immediately.
  • Medicaid and SSIP Friendly
    Irrevocable prepaid funeral agreements such as this are exempt from being counted as part of your assets when qualifying for state Medicaid or the Social Security Administration's Supplemental Security Income Program. If you are spending down your assets, a trust is a great choice.
  • Well established
    The trust is managed by a national leader in pre-need fund management with hundreds of millions of dollars in assets, and normally invested in United States Treasury Bonds.
