Plan for Tomorrow’s Funeral Needs Today
Fred Dickey Funeral and Cremation Services encourages families to plan for a funeral before it is needed.
Our Laredo funeral home takes care of your family by offering special services and programs that help you best memorialize a loved one, save you money, and protect your family. Planning a funeral in advance helps you by:
- Defining your final plan
- Saving you money
- And removing the burden of planning and payment for you family.
The average cost of a funeral and burial in the U.S. is over $10,000. That is an extraordinary amount of money to come up with suddenly. Unfortunately, other resources aren’t much help.
- Social Security Funeral Benefit. At this time, social security only covers $255 towards funeral costs, hardly a dent in today’s funeral cost.
- Veteran Funeral Benefit. Eligible veterans receive military honors at their funerals and free burial in a veteran cemetery. Funeral costs are not covered.
We offer a low cost and trusted way to manage funeral costs, death insurance. Death insurance or funeral insurance is an insurance policy that covers funeral or cremation costs at the time of death. The cost of the insurance policy is minimal, only a few dollars per month.
