PREPLAN Keeps Your Funds Safe and Secure

We take very seriously our obligation and duty to carefully manage each consumer’s pre-paid funeral trust account using every tool at our disposal to your advantage. With pre-paid funeral/burial accounts totaling over $600 million, we at PREPLAN are able to place your specially-designated funeral funds in the SAFEST MOST SECURE INVESTMENTS- like no one else can do.

These funds are placed in FDIC- insured certificates of Deposits (CDs) which provide you, as a consumer, with the combined financial benefit of safe, no risk investments that give you a maximum rate of interest. In addition, each account is fully insured up to $100,000. Our rock-solid investment principles first and foremost protect the security of consumers’ funeral trust funds. Our investments are diversified, and we will only do business with the highest-rated banking institutions.

Once your pre-paid funeral account is opened with our funeral home, PREPLAN’S professional staff immediately goes to work, sending you a personalized confirmation that your funds have been received and deposited. You will also receive from PREPLAN helpful and informative year-end tax statements and an annual statement detailing your account’s activity for the entire year. All of these services are yours for just a minimal fee that is automatically charged to your account.


All you need to do is contact us to open up an account, we can also pre-arrange your funeral and burial at the same time. After paying for your selections with a check payable to PREPLAN, we will then provide you with an itemized list of your selections, as well as a copy of your new pre-paid trust agreement.

Finally we will promptly send a copy of your agreement, along with your check, to PREPLAN for immediate deposit in your newly-established account.
