Funding Options

How Do I Pay for My Funeral Arrangements?

You may select one of two ways to handle your investment. The first method is to make payment in full. The second is through liberal financing terms offered directly through Ivey Funeral Home. In either case, most of the money for the funeral portion is placed into a State regulated trust fund, which is invested and grows over time. If the trust does not grow enough to meet the financial requirements at the time of need, Ivey Funeral Home fulfills the contract at no additional cost to your survivors.

Your Funding Is Secure

While there is no absolute guarantee for any investment in the event of catastrophic economic collapse, lawmakers and regulators have worked diligently to protect consumers with particular attention paid to the senior citizen population that plays such a vital role in the state’s economy. Your trust is regulated by the state of Indiana (both in the amounts that are deposited and how it is invested) providing you with the safest possible funding option.

Why Plan Ahead for Funeral Services?

Planning in advance of need provides peace of mind. The death of a loved one is a time of great loss and advance planning can reduce stress for your family with the knowledge that your personal preferences have been honored. This allows your loved ones to devote more time to coping and understanding the loss and less time concerned with funeral and cemetery arrangements and financial details.

Your Consultant understands that your personal choices are of the utmost importance and will meet with you to show you the quality of the merchandise, assist you with the selection of the necessary merchandise, and help you make the proper arrangements. Through pre-planning, the cost of a funeral and cemetery arrangements will be controlled. Merchandise selection during your pre-planning helps insure that you do not exceed what you want to pay. Pre-payment also offsets the risk of rising funeral costs in the future due to inflation.
