Professional Service Charges
To help you understand Funeral costs we have prepared an outline of the categories that make up a funeral account. There are basically four sections, Casket & Merchandise Selections, Professional Service Charges, Cash Disbursements and the government imposed taxes on applicable items.
To aid consumers, legislation provides that all funeral homes must provide an itemized price list of all of their related Professional Service Charges as well as casket and merchandise charges. This list must be available at consumers request without cost or obligation.
Casket and Merchandise Selections
This section is specific to the casket that a family selects. All of our caskets and merchandise is priced separately meaning the price you see for the casket is for the casket itself with no other items included. Some of the other types of merchandises you might find in this section of the funeral account are: Burial Vaults, Cremation Urns, and Stationary. Again, each is itemized based on your selection and a total is itemized under the "Casket & Merchandise Selections."
Cash Disbursements are as they imply. To aid families we serve, we will cover third party expenses and place them on our account as a convenience until the estate is understood. Strict legislation ensures that these items are not marked up and only the exact cost is included on the funeral account.
