Golden Considerations and KJPlanning partnership brings stability to a Michigan preneed market in flux 

As yet another major preneed insurance carrier exits the Michigan market, Golden Considerations, the nation’s largest independent preneed organization, brings industry leading technology and preneed services to bat for Michigan funeral homes in a brand new partnership with Michigan veteran KJPlanning. 

“The personalized local support of KJPlanning combined with the nationally recognized resources of Golden Considerations is exactly what Michigan funeral homes need right now,” says Kevin Brown, Owner of KJPlanning. 

“Kevin and Julie Brown have exemplified integrity in preneed professional services for the decades I have known them. I am thrilled to partner with KJPlanning to deliver superior services to the Michigan market.” – Robert Rae, Founder and CEO of Golden Considerations 

How will this partnership affect Michigan funeral homes? 

KJPlanning’s Julie Brown says their clients can rest assured: “It’s a perfect situation for our clients. Nothing has to change unless they want it to change. Period. But for those clients looking for more, we now have access to new products and services previously only available outside of Michigan.” 

“Whether it’s a universal casket price freeze, their “Agent Services” program, away-from-home products, or the entire suite of digital marketing services GC brings to the table, we’re excited to introduce a whole range of new products and services to the Michigan preneed market.” – Kevin Brown 

“We know that many Michigan funeral homes are reviewing their preneed programs in light of Homesteader’s departure from the market. Now is the perfect time to consider the local time-tested support of KJPlanning. We’re putting every resource we have behind them and we won’t rest until we’ve delivered the gains in market share and cash flow that our clients have enjoyed throughout the rest of the country.” – Chad Adams, President of Golden Considerations
