Due to the rising cost of goods and services, more and more funeral homes and cemeteries are requiring payment in full prior to providing funeral services or making the interment. With today’s economy, families are relying on life insurance benefits to pay for these services. Unfortunately, it can take several weeks or even months for the insurance underwriter to pay the claim to the beneficiary or the funeral home / cemetery when taking an assignment. Likewise, the paperwork associated with funeral financing and insurance assignments is becoming more complicated and time consuming, taking valuable time away from serving families.

Through assignment of life insurance, American Funeral Financial, LLC, assists funeral homes and cemeteries by taking the burden of collection off your shoulders. You can do what you do best – serve families. We increase your cash flow, reduce your bad debt and reduce your administrative burdens and costs.

American Funeral Financial, LLC – your one source for funeral funding – insurance assignment services and cash flow.
