Funeral Funding Options
Once you have planned your final ceremony and decided to set aside funds to cover the costs, you will be able to choose between several payment options for your services.
When you pay Archer-Weston Funeral Home directly, we place your investment in a funeral trust. Your funeral trust builds interest in hopes of keeping pace with with inflation between the time the trust is created and the time of need.
Multiple Payment Options
Arrangements can be made to pay over time, however Archer-Weston recommends purchasing an insurance policy when utilizing this payment option.
An insurance policy not only gives you added security, but also a third-party administrator of payments and death benefits. Insurance will guarantee payment of the pre-need amount in the event need occurs before payment has been made in full.
Life Insurance Assignment
Life Insurance policy benefits may be assigned to funeral costs. After the costs of your arrangements have been covered, benefits exceeding the cost of funeral expenses will then be sent to your family. In the case of a public assistance program, it is required by federal law that funds be returned to the program itself.
