Why should you choose us?
When you have a pre-paid plan with a Dignity Memorial provider and wish to transfer the plan to another location more than 75 miles away, every detail of your plan moves with you. All of our pre-paid plans are transferable and will be honored by any of the qualifying Dignity Memorial providers in North America. That’s a promise you won’t find anywhere else. Restrictions apply.
If you place a life celebration with us, but at some point in the future, and for any reason, you would like to add to your plan with new arrangements, you can. With Lifetime Flexibility, if you want to make any changes to your plan, we are always available to discuss your many options. Restrictions apply.
PURCHASE PROTECTION PLAN
Should you pass away before your purchased cemetery property is fully paid for, your family will receive some financial relief. Our Purchase Protection Plan will help take care of any remaining balance due to the cemetery. Purchaser must be under 65 years of age; maximum forgiven balance not to exceed $5,000. Other restrictions may apply.
