Quietly and for a while now Service Corporation International (NYSE:SCI) has been blogging for Funeral Dollars.
Do not be fooled there are lies in there too.
“Snippet From the Dignity North Carolina Blog:
Funeral insurance is usually sold as guaranteed coverage, which means that it cannot be denied to you because of pre existing health conditions the way that life insurance can be.
No funeral insurance (Preneed, Prepaid) can guarantee coverage because no investment in today’s market can be guaranteed. No one can lock in today’s prices anymore. No one can say that will happen.
The absurdity of the statement “it( funeral Insurance) cannot be denied to you because of pre existing health benefits.” This sounds good at first but it is an apple and oranges comparison.
Funeral insurance is a purchase of funeral goods and service that is put into an insurance or other investment vehicle. Life insurance refers to payment of monies upon your death. They are quite different things.
Will the World Largest Funeral Corporation start “STATE BY STATE” Funeral Blogs as it did for it’s Funeral Homes in North Carolina? It is quite possible they have already done this. this tactic is an indication of funeral industry decline, and the declining funeral cost to the consumer.
The recent NPS, Illinois Funeral Directors Association Preneed Scandal and the California Funeral Directors Association Scandal is reason enough to avoid funeral preneed.
