PRE-ARRANGED AND PRE-FUNDED FUNERALS
Many people are discovering that pre-arranging their funeral services lightens the burden on family members when the need arises.  Pre-arrangement and pre-financing of funerals is a  rising trend nationwide.  There are two options available for pre-arrangements as dictated by Wisconsin state law.

Bank Trust Accounts
All monies received by the funeral home are placed in a 100% trust through a local bank in a certificate of deposit.  All interest accumulates to the account until drawn out with a certified                        copy of the death certificate.  There are limits to the amount that can be deposited in a bank trust.  And a 1099 will be issued annually.

Insurance Trust Accounts
Also 100% trusted, with the depositrory being an insurance company.  All interest accumulates to the account until drawn out with a certified copy of the death certificate.  There are several insurance companies who handle funeral trusts.  They are originated with the funeral home and insurance trusts do not have the same limits as bank trusts. No 1099 issued.

Pre-arrangement and Medical Assistance
It is often necessary to place a person on Medical Assistance as their assets dwindle.  When funds are running out, a spend-down of remaining assets begins.  An acceptable spend-down is a funeral pre-paid agreement.  There are certain limits which must be adhered to.  Our funeral directors can advise you on the ways to place funds in trust and qualify for Medical Assistance programs.
We welcome the opportunity to discuss with you the options for funeral pre-arranging or prefinancing.  If you would like to meet with a funeral director, please feel free to call.  An appointment can be scheduled at your convenience.
