Abbey Caskets has expanded its Funeral Expense Trust used for prefunding your caskets to also help you set aside and protect funds necessary to help your family pay for:

  • Funeral goods and services
  • Cemetery property and fees
  • Other memorial-related expenses
  • Optional charitable donations

Check out our blog to learn more about the benefits of a Funeral Expense Trust.

Your Funeral Expense Trust will be prefunded using an insurance policy. The insurance policy will be assigned to a trust until the time of need. This provides the greatest protection of your funds.

At the time of death, your family can take your policy to the funeral home of your choice to be used towards your funeral expenses.

By making funding plans in advance, you avoid placing a financial burden on your family and friends, allowing them to focus solely on their memories of you.

No! That is one of the true benefits of using the Funeral Expense Trust. You can set aside funds for these expenses now, but you can either make the selections at a later time or allow your family to do that when the time comes.

Either way, the funds will be ready to pay for whatever services are eventually chosen. Deciding how much you would like to set aside is all you have to decide now.

When you set aside funds in the Funeral Expense Trust, not only will you gain peace of mind knowing your family doesn’t have the stress of funding your funeral, you can also rest easy knowing your purchase through Abbey Caskets supports the prayer and work of the monks of Saint Meinrad Archabbey.
