FUNERAL PROTECTION PLAN FAQs

Q. What is the Funeral Protection Plan?
A. This benefit is provided by the largest direct to consumer casket warehouse in the country. Specializing in end of life information and referral services, funeral planning and coordination, and offering the finest funeral merchandise direct to the consumer at savings of 40% to 70% less than traditional funeral homes, the Tribute Direct Funeral Protection is a plan for all families. Members receive an additional 5% member discount at the point of purchase.

Q. How does this benefit work?
A. Members simply call the toll-free number in their membership booklet to speak with a funeral advisor. Once eligibility is established, the member will be asked for information that will assist the advisor in helping with a personal or family situation. The trained and experienced end of life specialist will help with understanding the issues related to the death, funeral and bereavement process and can assist the member in designing a plan, purchasing merchandise and coordination of the end of life process.

Q. Is this service for me?
A. Yes. Death is certain, but the costs of dying aren't. Millions of American families face death each year. Families are forced to make over 140 decisions in less than 24 hours after the death of a loved one. It is during this time that many funeral homes take advantage of grieving families, as most people are unfamiliar with the process and costs associated with dying. The Funeral Protection Plan allows families to plan, discuss, purchase and implement a plan in dealing with the loss of a loved one without the pressure of a funeral home director or salesman, but with a caring end of life professional who acts as the family's "personal funeral advisor."

A. Benefits include:

  • Online Comprehensive Funeral Preplanning and Plan Storage
  • Funeral/Cremation Information and Referral Services
  • End of Life Planning/Coordination
