Funeral Trusts are a great planning strategy to help clients set aside the funds they have earmarked for their final expenses.

As an Agent, you serve your clients in all areas of life, so make sure you serve them and their families in planning for their final needs. Most of your clients prepare for life’s possible events, but the majority of them don’t prepare for life’s only inevitable event – death.

A recent survey found that 90% of Americans believe pre-funding their funeral is a good idea. However, your client’s limited options of doing this have opened up a new line of business for you. Someone is going to offer this to your clients – is it going to be you?

  • 90% of your clients believe pre-funding their funeral is a good idea.
  • 71% think this should be done with you, their trusted advisor.
  • 16.7 million Americans plan to pre-fund their funeral next year.
