OUR PAYMENT POLICY
Losing someone you love is a devastating experience. It can be very traumatic and seriously impact one’s judgment. Therefore, it is important to be realistic with respect to funeral expenditures.
One of the most important responsibilities we have to each family we are privileged to serve is to listen and bring your emotional and financial needs together, whatever the circumstances may be. We do not want your choices to be more than is affordable, nor less then you would like to arrange. We will listen to your needs. We pride ourselves on not offering “packages” where families are only allowed to purchase from those packages and may not want or need something that is included in that package. We prefer to offer a range of a la carte services and merchandise so that families are only selecting those items which they desire.
We understand the importance of a meaningful service and are here to assist you in any way we can. As part of our consultation with your family, we will discuss the different available payment options. Our goal is to ensure that the services and merchandise you select will be in keeping with your wishes, as well as your budget.
Wiedeman Funeral Home has established the following uniform payment policy. This payment policy enables us to keep the cost down for all the families we serve, as well as treat everyone fairly.
We accept the following forms of payment:
- VISA, Mastercard
- Insurance Assignment
Our funeral home will mail a final statement 7-10 days after the services are concluded.
It is our policy that 30 days after the date of the funeral, payment is due in full if there are sufficient assets to cover the bill or an insurance assignment to the funeral home is given.
If there are no assets or insurance, payment is due at the time of service.
We accept insurance policy assignment, under the following conditions:
- The policy must be verified by our staff to be in force
- The policy must be assignable, and payable to Wiedeman Funeral Home & Cremation Services, Inc.
If the family opts to use a credit card for payment, charges over $500.00 will incur a 3% service fee to cover the fees assessed by the credit card company.
We do not finance or extend credit. If a long-term payment plan is desired, a bank, credit union or loan company of the family’s choice shall be used to provide payment.
Wiedeman Funeral Home & Cremation Services reserve the right to charge 1% per month for any charges not satisfied within 30 days. If you anticipate a problem or difficulty in meeting these obligations, please feel free to discuss your situation with your funeral service provider.
