Pre-Paid Funerals

Planning and pre-paying your funeral will alleviate extra stress and expenses on your family at an already difficult time.  By planning your funeral in advance you are locking in prices and arranging the funeral service you want.  

Types of Pre-Paid Funerals Offers

There are two methods of planning ahead for a funeral which are offered by Maurer Family Funerals.

Points to consider are:

  • You decide on the funeral service that you want
  • You receive a written contract documenting your wishes

Points to consider are:

  • It is a secure investment in your name
  • It helps relieve the stress and the financial burden of funeral expenses
  • You can invest up to $13,500 (indexed annually)
  • The bond grows in value as it enjoys annual bonuses

  • Monies invested in a funeral bond must be used to contribute towards the cost of your funeral
  • A funeral bond can be taken out in joint names
