Questions About Pre-arrangements
Can I transfer my pre-arranged funeral from one funeral home to another?
Absolutely, you may transfer your pre-arrangement to another funeral home at any time. Many people who enter into a prepaid funeral contract do not fully understand what their transferability rights are. Plans can be transferred either before or after death occurs. Laws governing prepaid funeral contracts purchased through a funeral home are designed to protect you, the consumer. Linville Memorial Funeral Home accepts all pre-need transfers without any additional cost to you.
What if the contract is irrevocable?
Irrevocable does NOT mean you can't use a different funeral home. Alabama law allows for preneed funeral contracts to be switched to another funeral home.
For your protection, any funds used to purchase a prepaid funeral were placed in the hands of a third party where they remain until you cancel the contract or the contract is fulfilled. You retain ownership, and therefore control of the funds at all times up to the point where a licensed funeral home actually performs the contracted services.
