Folks at the Mount Washington Forever Funeral Home in Independence Missouri are getting some preneed, prepaid funeral relief. Their policies which they paid under a National Prearranged Services prepaid funeral policies were eclare no longer valid.
But two Funeral Home chains are lending a hand and folks have been getting credits on their NPS Policies.
Representatives of Charter Funerals and Speaks Family Legacy Chapels said hundreds of Mount Washington Forever clients had brought in paperwork documenting their transactions with Mount Washington, which ceased operations in July.
A substantial number have agreed to new contracts, taking advantage of credits offered by the companies.
What remains unclear is the fate of payments made on contracts to National Prearranged Services Inc., a St. Louis area company that figures in federal litigation alleging fraud in as many as 19 states.
