Pennsylvania law requires that money used for prepaying a funeral must be 100% trusted.  That means you don't actually pay the funeral home when you prepay.  All the money you set aside for your funeral must be placed into a funding mechanism.  There are basically two choices:

More often times than not, life insurance is more advantageous than a bank C.D. - Both will earn interest and grow to help hedge against inflation.  However, depending on the person's age and health, you will be able to buy more coverage initially with life insurance.  Therefore, with a bank C.D., the money is invested dollar for dollar, while with insurance, pennies become dollars instantly.  Life insurance also grows tax free while the interest earned on a C.D. is taxable.  Insurance also allows you to make monthly payments, if you qualify. 


We can help you set up either a trust account or an insurance policy.  We can also help you utilize an existing life insurance policy that you may currently have.  Please click here  "Contact Us" if you have any questions or would like to make an appointment.
