According to Federal Law, all funeral homes must give price information over the phone. In addition, funeral homes must provide consumers with their current General Price List (including a price list for merchandise including outer burial containers (vaults), caskets and urns), which must itemize the costs associated with funerals. Along with explanations in the GPL, listed below are many different options that are available. In order for you to better understand the GPL, funeral costs can generally be put into three categories:
- The merchandise purchased for the funeral, such as caskets, vaults, register books and memorial folders or prayer cards.
- The professional services of the funeral director and staff.
- Cash advance items, which are third party charges that the funeral home may include on their bill as a courtesy to the family.
