Check out this article from the New York Times regarding the concept of pricing for funeral homes being available for consumers online.
Excerpt: “Shoppers routinely use the internet to compare prices, whether for appliances, cars or hotel rooms. But online pricing remains scant for funeral services, putting bereaved and vulnerable people at a financial disadvantage because they’re unlikely to haggle over costs.”
Though it may be the last thing you want to do, do your research when it comes to funeral prices. Dealing with the loss of a loved one is difficult enough without overpaying for funeral costs. If you have any questions, please feel free to reach out to one of our estate planning attorneys.
