Funeral costs may be paid by cash, checks, VISA, MasterCard and Discover. In some cases, assignment of verified insurance benefits can also be used.

Can I make my funeral/burial arrangements before I die?

Today, advance planning and prepayment of funerals/burials are becoming common. Advance planning will provide you with more time to review your options and give you a choice in you own funeral services. It will provide you with the peace of mind that everything is taken care of, relieving your family of the emotional and financial burden that comes with making arrangements when a loved one passes away. At CFCS Colorado, we have experienced PreNeed Counselors available to assist you with your prearrangements.
