Guaranteed Services Trust

Whenever someone makes a mortuary trust, an estimate of expenses for what those goods and services cost on that day are discussed. Once the total price for those goods and services have been agreed to, a type of mortuary trust is selected. A Guaranteed Services Trust is when the total amount of the estimate is paid in full. This does not ""lock in" that price. When the death occurs, a new estimate for those same goods and services is compiled. The money, which has been held in an interest bearing account, is withdrawn from the bank or financial institution and the funeral bill is paid for. If there are not enough funds to pay for the funeral, we will not seek any further funds to make up the difference, as it was "paid in full" when the trust was created. Similarly, if there are more than enough funds to pay for the funeral, none will be returned, as it was "paid in full" when the trust was created. We do reserve the right to bill for any increase in cost for Cash Advances only.

 

Credit for Services - No Insurance

When a Credit for Services Trust is used, the consumer may opt to either pay the entire amount of the estimate, or a portion of that amount. Like the Guaranteed Services Trust, these funds will be placed in an interest bearing account in a bank or financial institution. The biggest difference is that, at the time of death, if there are not enough funds to pay for the funeral, we will bill the next of kin, or the estate, for the balance due. The family could also opt to choose lesser goods and services to try and make the estimate come closer to the amount held in the trust.

If there are more than enough funds available to pay for the funeral expenses, we would return those funds to the estate or next of kin.

 

Credit for Services - With Insurance

If someone has an existing life insurance policy, and would like to use that policy to fund their mortuary trust, we can use a Credit for Services Trust. In this case, money can also be given to help pay for the goods and services if necessary.

The funeral home would be made the assignee or the beneficiary of the insurance policy. And, at the time of death, the proceeds of the policy would be sent to the funeral home for payment. If there are not enough funds to pay for the funeral, we will bill the next of kin, or other person, for the balance due. The family could also opt to choose lesser goods and services to try and make the estimate come closer to the amount held in the trust.

If there are more than enough funds available to pay for the funeral expenses, we would return those funds to the estate or next of kin.
