The Funeral Rule
The Federal Trade Commission Mandated in 1984 that all funeral homes will accept caskets from other sources such as CASKET STORES.
Funeral Homes are NOT ALLOWED to charge extra service charges or handeling fees to families when the families choose to purchase Caskets and other burial items from outside of the funeral homes.
Indeeed - this is a good point. By law, funeral homes can not mark up the price of other services if you do not buy a casket Urn or Vault from them, but it unfortunately still happens. If you find that this is happening when you are purchasing funeral services, you can report it to the Federal Trade Commission as a violation of the Funeral Rule which allows consumers to bring their own merchandice without penality, charge, or handling fees.
FUNERAL PLANNING STARTS WITH THE CASKET
Working with an honest transparent funeral home is important, so do your due diligence before committing to any purchases of services or products. Most towns have several funeral homes to choose from in their area, so shop around to find the right one for you. Not all families have a huge burial policy, and need to save as much as possable in these last days of life. Prearrange your funeral if at all possable, so your love ones don't have to make all the decessions for you. I have seen so many families torn appart over what Mom, Dad, Brother or Sister would have wanted. REMEMBER FUNERAL PLANING STARTS WITH THE CASKET
