You Can Prepay
Prepayment means that you save money by being protected from
inflation and price changes. We deposit all prepayments into financial
Institutions that are approved by the AFSRB (Alberta Funeral Services
Regulatory Board) where it remains until needed. Prepaying also provides
peace of mind for your family, who won’t have to figure out your
funeral expenses when the time comes. An added benefit is that these
funds remain “outside the estate”, which eliminates taxation and helps
the Personal Representative (Executor) who is responsible for payment of
the funeral account.
