Funeral  & Cremation Services Beyond Your Expectations

Transfer Pre Arrangements


Many people who enter into a prepaid funeral contract do not fully understand their rights. A Prepaid Funeral Contract (whether through a funeral home or a cemetery) can be transferred either before or after death occurs. Indiana laws governing prepaid funeral contracts purchased through a funeral home or cemetery are designed to protect you the consumer. For your protection, any funds paid for your prepaid funeral were placed in the hands of a third party (typically an insurance company or escrow agent) where they must remain until you cancel the contract or the contract is fulfilled. You retain ownership, and therefore control of the funds at all times up to the point where a licensed funeral home actually performs the contracted services. And even then the funds can only be released to the funeral home that actually performed the funeral services.
