You may select one of two ways to prepay for a funeral. The first method is to make payment in full. The second is through liberal financing terms offered through our firm. In either case, the money is placed into a state-regulated trust fund, which is invested and grows over time.

Your Funding Is Secure

While there is no absolute guarantee for any investment in the event of catastrophic economic collapse, lawmakers and regulators have worked diligently to protect consumers with particular attention paid to the senior citizen population that plays such a vital role in the state’s economy. Your trust is regulated by the state of Indiana (both in the amounts that are deposited and how it is invested), providing you with the safest possible funding option. If the trust does not grow enough to meet the financial requirements at the time of need, the company fulfills the contract at no additional cost to your survivors.

Merchandise and Funeral Cost

Elm Ridge understands that your personal choices are of the utmost importance. We will meet with you and assist you in the appropriate selection of merchandise along with helping you make the proper arrangements. Through pre-planning, the cost of a funeral will be controlled. Merchandise selection during your pre-planning helps ensure that you do not exceed what you want to pay. Prepayment also offsets the risk of rising funeral costs in the future.
