Payment, Financing, And Funding

For funerals that are being arranged at the time of need, unless otherwise specified, a deposit will be required at the time the contract is signed, or before the date of the funeral. The balance of the account is due within 30 days of the signing of the contract. Payment may be made by cash, cheque, Visa or Mastercard. Beyond the allotted time, interest will be charged at a compounded rate of 1.33% per month on the unpaid balance, which is equivalent to 16% per annum (APR).

For funerals that are being arranged pre-need, we offer two funding options when prepaying services or supplies. When prepaying, you pay for the services and supplies today, and the money will be used to pay for the services and supplies when they are delivered at the time of death.

Trust: You may pay the money directly to us and we will place it in a trust account, where it will accrue interest until the contract is fulfilled (when the services and supplies are delivered) or the contract is cancelled. Payment can be made by cash or cheque.

Insurance: You may purchase an insurance product through us where the proceeds of the insurance policy will be used to pay for the services or supplies at the time they are delivered or the contract is cancelled. Payment may be made by cash or cheque for single payments. Time payments may be made by credit card or direct withdrawal.

Additional information is available upon request.

Unless otherwise identified, all prices do not include applicable taxes.
