About First Choice Funeral Funding

The use of life insurance policies to pay for a loved one’s funeral service/cemetery plot has always been a popular way for family members to be able to arrange an appropriate tribute. The funeral home/cemetery however, found themselves waiting weeks and sometimes months before the funds arrived from the insurance company.

First Choice Funeral Funding, lead by funeral service veterans, is the most cost-effective solution for funeral homes and cemeteries to better serve their clients and solve their cash flow woes. We assist your staff with the administration and communications with the insurance company, leaving you more time to care for your families. Everybody wins! Have questions?
