Planning Ahead

Some families desire to Pre-Arrange (Pre-Need, Pre-Paid, Pre-Fund)

Final arrangements. As you plan ahead, your first step should be to plan with competent professionals. All funeral establishments are not licensed to Pre-Arrange funerals. You should consult with your funeral establishment of choice and ask to view their Pre-Arrangement license, known as a Certificate of Authority (COA). Only the Alabama Department of Insurance may issue a COA.  The Department of Insurance is the sole regulator of Pre-Arranged/Pre-Paid Funerals. Their website, ALDOI.GOV, provides a listing of all licensed Pre-Arrangement Providers. It is illegal for a funeral establishment without a COA to provide Pre-Arranged Funeral Services.

At Johnson Memorial, we offer the experience and qualifications  to manage any details related to Pre-Arrangement. We currently maintain Alabama Department of Insurance COA #13384.

Please call to schedule a time to meet with us in order that we may address any of your pre-arrangement needs.
