How do I plan my funeral arrangements?
With ELCO Mutuals Preneed insurance, you'll work directly with a funeral home to make decisions about your funeral before your death. This means you still get to choose the funeral home of your choice and work with a funeral home director who knows you, your family, and your final wishes.
A single premium means this policy’s death benefit helps fund your funeral. The policy can be assigned to your funeral home, which will then own the rights and receive the death benefit as payment to cover your funeral expenses.
Why get preneed through ELCO Mutual?
We offer great opportunities for financial growth. While they are not guaranteed, the potential dividends you may qualify for are delivered as one-year term additions.
Are there different types of policies available?
Yes, there are single pay and multi-pay options available for preneed insurance. Single pay requires a larger sum of money up front (with a minimum premium of $500), while multi-pay allows this money to be spread over a longer period of time.
