Can I transfer my pre-arranged funeral from one funeral home to another?

Absolutely, you may transfer your pre-arrangement to another funeral home at any time. Many people who enter into a prepaid funeral contract do not fully understand what their transferability rights are. Plans can be transferred either before or after death occurs. Most of the laws in Illinois governing prepaid funeral contracts purchased through a funeral home are designed to protect you the consumer. Rafferty Funeral Home accepts all pre-need transfers without any additional cost to you.

For your protection, any funds used to purchase your prepaid funeral were placed in the hands of a third party where they remain until you cancel the contract or the contract is fulfilled. You retain ownership, and therefore control of the funds at all times up to the point where a licensed funeral home actually performs the contracted services. And even then the funds can only be released to the funeral home that actually performed the funeral services.

A contract can be easily transferred before a death or even after a death occurs. Simply contact Rafferty Funeral Home at (309) 797-190 and we will be able to assist you. In order to transfer the contract, all that needs to be done is to notify the third party holding the funds who the new funeral home will be. We make this process as simple as possible for you, personally handling all documentation and delivering it to your home for signing. In most cases the money never actually moves, only the funeral home designation changes.
