Do You Know???

The different types of Pre-Arrangement
opportunities available today?
There are two distinct plans:   
1. An Irrevocably Assigned Insured plan   
2.  A Trust plan                                             
The key to the best plans available are that they are  irrevocably assigned
and tied to a specific  funeral provider,  who  in  turn  guarantees the  plan
and  future  costs.  Sometimes,  final  expense plans  are  not  irrevocably
assigned, and thus, guarantees you nothing.

Basic  life  insurance  that  is  not irrevocably assigned  is considered  an  
asset  and  can be subject to  tax  liabilities.   Money   invested  in  Trust  
plans  are
controlled  by  the funeral  provider  that  owns the Trust and
has been assigned. This "ownership" allows that funeral provider access
to the funds for certain "allowable"  fees.   Should  you   decide  to change
your  mind  or  change funeral   providers, there could be a loss to you.  
This is one instance the "fine print" must be studied to truly understand
what you have.

Money invested  in insured, irrevocably  assigned plans  are
controlled  by YOU,   the insured, are mobile and secure,
with guaranteed payout amounts.

There are many rules, regulations and licenses regarding
funded pre-arranged funerals.

Funeral arrangements are one of the realities of life...
and one of the most neglected areas of financial planning.  Studies have
shown that families who have not pre-planned often spend more for the
funeral event of a loved one.

Facing the reality of a death in the family and making plans on how
to handle it can be one of the best restraints from an emotionally charged
financial decision that will be made.
