  • More Time to Consider Your Options
    You and your family will have time to research your options and make well-informed decisions, without feeling rushed.

  • A Sense of Accomplishment
    You will feel more at ease knowing that these arrangements have been taken care of.

  • Fewer Family Concerns
    Your surviving family members will have less to worry about in the event of your death.

Financial Benefits

  • The Prepayment Option
    When you pre pay you can be assured you will never pay more for the same service in the future. Our funeral directors will explain each payment method and investment option available and will help you make a decision that best suits you and your family. We offer both trust and insurance options with the choice of payments over several years or as a single payment.

  • Your Family Keeps More
    When you pre-pay, your estate will owe nothing on funeral expenses. More of your assets and life insurance proceeds will go directly to your family.

  • Medicaid Issues
    Our preneed counselors are well trained and very knowledgable to all areas of Medicaid. They are able to assist families in navigating the confusing regulations mandated when a loved one enters a nursing home.

  • Sure Safe
    Milner & Orr is proud to be the only area funeral home to offer the "Sure Safe" Preneed Assurance Program.  We know families want to know their money is safe and a plan from us carries the strongest assurance plan around.  We will provide you and your family members with a copy of "Sure Safe."

We are Here to Help You

  • Save the Amount You Need
    Once you gain an understanding of all the costs involved, you can earmark a portion of your savings to cover those costs.

  • Fewer Last-minute Expenses
    When you plan in advance, your family is less likely to incur additional expenses at the time of the funeral.
