Rich and Thompson Funeral and Cremation Service offers our families the opportunity to prearrange funerals for themselves or their loved ones. By doing so, you are making your wishes known to those left to plan your funeral and you are providing a means to relieve them of the financial responsibility of paying for your funeral expenses.
Before making decisions about your funeral service, you need to become better informed about the pre-arrangement process. North Carolina has some very specific laws in force to protect the consumer from fraud and misuse of pre-need funds and the Federal Trade Commission also has guidelines that must be followed when arrangements are being discussed.
Rich and Thompson Funeral Service works with the Forethought Life Insurance Company to offer our families a variety of payment plans for pre-funding funerals. Pre-need funding offers protection against inflationary increases in the cost of funeral services and merchandise. Please look at our Frequently Asked Questions for more information on how this works. For more information about the NC laws governing pre-need, visit the North Carolina Board of Funeral Service website.
If you desire additional information, Rich and Thompson Funeral and Cremation Service has several funeral directors that are very knowledgeable in the rules governing the pre-arrangement process. Please feel free to contact the funeral home for an appointment to learn more about how Rich and Thompson can help you make informed decisions about prearranged funerals.
