At Fee & Sons Funeral Home and Crematorium we provide a pre-planning service. In one of our earlier blog posts, we talk about the topic of pre-planning and the benefits it offers to individuals and their loved ones. If you have not yet viewed this post, you can do so here to find out more on pre-need arrangements.


Once you have made the decision to plan your pre-arrangements, you will have a peace-of-mind knowing you have outlined instruction for your family and loved one and provided your guidance for your wishes and desires for your funeral.


A common question that goes hand in hand with a pre-arrangement is the concern of transferring from one funeral home to another if need be. A pre-need arrangement is your plan and is completely customized to fit your needs and also your circumstances. In life, we experience changes whether its preference or even your zip code. The good news is transferring is absolutely granted.


If you decide, or life decides for you that a transfer is necessary to fulfill your needs and wants for your funeral, your current funeral director who has helped your pre-arrange can help you complete a transfer.


First, you need to notify the funeral home where you originally set-up your pre-need arrangement. The funeral director will then conduct all the necessary paperwork to get a transfer in order for you. Inform them of the new funeral home in which you wish your arrangement to be transferred to. The funeral director will contact this funeral home and deal with all the logistics on your behalf. All that is needed of you is a signature of approval.


If you have also made pre-payments on your arrangement or paid in full for your funeral services, the funds will not be transferred to the funeral home until your death has occurred.


Pre-planning your funeral while you are still alive provides you flexibility and customization. If you have any other questions on the topic of transferring a pre-arrangement you can contact the experts at, Fee & Sons Funeral Home and Crematorium, here
