Omaha ElderCare Resource Handbook:
Funeral Arranging

Preplanning your funeral can be a wonderful gift to those you leave behind. Your wishes will be known and your friends and family will not end up faced with difficult decisions during a time of grieving, when they are often most vulnerable.  If you are planning a funeral, having a friend with you who is not grieving can help in trying to make the best decision for your loved one.  Payment options for funerals can be:

  • Prepaid plan
  • Trust fund
  • Insurance policy
  • Private pay

The Federal Trade Commission outlines consumer protection laws relating to funeral goods.  You can contact them at: www.ftc.gov/funerals.
