The Cremation Society of New Hampshire (CSNH) partners with a funeral financing assistance organization to meet customer demand for help paying for end-of-life costs
“Dad had a heart attack and died suddenly, and we weren’t ready for that. I know he wanted to be cremated, but he also wanted everyone to be able to say ‘goodbye,’’ too. I don’t have money in the bank for a full cremation service.”
We know that deaths are often unexpected. When an untimely death happens, many people wonder how to pay for a funeral, including the costs related to cremation. You may not have accessible financial means to give your loved one the respectful farewell you envisioned, including a service. There is now help paying for a funeral available to you.
CSNH partners with Memorial Funding to offer you an option for convenient and affordable financing of cremation and memorial services and associated expenses related to those services. You can focus on honoring your loved one and not be deterred by how to pay.
At the time of death, a funeral financing assistance option may ease some of the burden and stress that comes with making arrangements. Once approved for financing, you will have access to the funds in order to make service arrangements to honor your loved one. Then, you can pay off the cost over time in monthly increments at competitive rates.
