The course Eligible Funeral Arrangements is relatively short, and focuses on the opportunity to pre-fund a funeral service, a cemetery service, or both. We cover the tax advantage to pre-funding these services and how clients may avoid paying taxes on interest income. For advisors, this course can be considered "another tool in the toolbox".
