Review ways to fund a funeral
Funeral services and their associated products, services and events can be costly, no matter your financial situation.
Important The median price for a funeral with a viewing and burial is nearly $8,000. This doesn't include the additional costs for a cemetery, events, or providers such as accountants or lawyers.
Therefore, before planning the funeral, check to see if there are any funeral benefits or allocated money available to help pay for everything.
Once this has been assessed, you may have a better understanding of how to approach this part of the process.
