Have you been involved in funeral planning lately? Did you know that embalming is not required in the 50 states; and neither is a coffin or casket for a ground burial? The Federal Trade Commission has a Funeral Rule booklet that is good to know about before you need it. It requires disclosure from funeral homes before you pay money or sign on the dotted line. It could save you a lot of money and anxiety. Joshua Slocum, executive director of the Funeral Consumer’s Alliance, tells us how we can be more proactive in planning for that ultimate day. Go to www.funerals.org for this and much more information.
