The Funeralwise FAP is a unique benefit that can help you provide your members with peace of mind when it comes to end-of-life planning.

Funeralwise is an independent resource.
We are not a funeral home. We are an independent funeral planning company and have no funeral home affiliation. This allows us to work with any funeral home so members can use any funeral home they choose. This also prevents the church from inadvertently promoting one funeral home over another.
Our independence also allows us to provide unbiased recommendations on funeral funding options, whether it be a pre-need funeral trust, burial insurance, or an annuity. We recommend funding options that best fit your church member’s specific needs and situation.
Our partnership with the non-profit Final Expense Planning Specialist Association (FEPSA) allows us the ability to provide you with Last Will and Testaments, Living Wills, and Advance Healthcare Directives at no cost. Through this partnership. we also offer our Funeralwise Legacy Program which includes the SAGE Scholarship Program.
