BENEFITS OF PREFUNDING
PEACE OF MIND
• Leave a written guide to be followed, eliminating stressful guesswork for your loved ones
• Protect your loved ones from the financial burden of paying for your cemetery burial
• Ensure that your final wishes are followed
• Interest in the trust is compound interest. Compound interest is calculated not only on the initial principal but also the accumulated interest of prior periods. This means that your account grows faster than with simple interest. Compound interest differs from simple interest in that simple interest is calculated solely as a percentage of the principal sum. Compound interest may offset the effects of inflation and limit the potential of added funeral expenses at the time of need.
• Irrevocable prepaid funeral agreements are currently an allowable transfer and exempt from being counted as part of your assets for those who qualify for state Medicaid or the Social Security Administration’s Supplemental Security Income Program.
Funds for over 97,000 beneficiaries from over 1,150 funeral homes and cemeteries are invested with the goal of limiting the potential of added financial burden on your loved ones at the time of need. Funds are typically invested solely in US treasury bonds (unless state laws stipulate otherwise) which are held to maturity. Interest earned is compounded monthly. Rates are typically higher than a bank savings account or standard certificate of deposit. United States Treasury Bonds are guaranteed by the full faith and credit of the United States government.
