What are Excess Funds?

Excess funds refer to money that’s left over after all funeral expenses are paid. Depending on the state you’re in and the plan you select, these funds are either returned to 1) the estate or designated beneficiary or 2) the funeral home. There are instances that the funeral home may receive the excess funds to offset the significant risks they’re assuming to guarantee prices on the front end for you.
