General Price List
A General Price List (GPL) is a document that itemizes the prices of goods and services offered by a Funeral Home.
Part of the Federal Trade Commission's (FTC) Funeral Rule, this law requires that funeral homes offer consumers the opportunity to view all prices before purchasing.
This helps customers to review lower-priced options which may not be on display, and promotes transparency and fair pricing in the funeral industry at large.
The GPL must be given over the phone and in person if requested, and must list services offered, their corresponding prices and any additional fees or surcharges that may apply.
This can include items such as Embalming, Cremation, Caskets, Urns, funeral vehicles like a Hearse, and staff services.
The General Price List serves as a tool for consumers to compare prices between funeral homes and make informed decisions about the services they wish to purchase.
It is an important part of the FTC's efforts to promote transparency and fair pricing in the funeral industry.
