The desire to help others has always been a concern of the Stevenson family

Plan Ahead

Before the need arises

Many individual families are making the decision to prearrange their funerals. The advantages make sense.

  • Makes your wishes known.
  • Means that your family can be involved in making these difficult decisions.
  • Relieves your loved ones of the financial responsibility.

Pre-arranging funerals are especially important to anyone considering public aid. In addition to a set amount in cash assets, the North Dakota State Department of Public Aid allows a burial fund.

Types of Funding Available

Exclusive Burial Insurance available only from Stevenson Funeral Home, with very competitive returns.

Annuities
Generally, annuities allow for the money you pay to be invested. Interest is earned, which will increase over time. The interest rate it earns and the rate of inflation are important considerations. It is important to consider tax liabilities that may be applicable.

Life Insurance
Through this method, the person planning their funeral buys a policy of life insurance and directs payment of the death benefit to the funeral home.

Savings Accounts
Savings Accounts can be established for the purpose of paying for the funeral. The interest will increase, over time. Interest earned each year is usually subject to income tax.

Bank Trusts
Funds may be placed in a trust fund at a bank and invested to earn interest to increase the funds available to pay for the funeral. Generally, you are responsible for federal income taxes on the interest earned each year. Administrative expenses are also generally charged by the bank.

I just wanted to give a HUGE shout out to Stevenson Funeral Home, out here in Dickinson. Last October, they did a wonderful job with the cremation and presentation of our baby boy Forrest.
With the passing of our latest boy, Leo, we didn’t get the option to cremate him, either bury him out here or leave him in the lab until we decided where to bury him. So I contacted Stevenson Funeral Home, who so generously offered to cremate him for us so he could come home and be with his brother. AND they’re only charging us a small fee of $10 for the whole process including his urn.
I was very nervous going in, with all this abortion talk, I was scared I would get laughed at for wanting to cremate a “fetus”. But to us, he is our son, no matter how big or small.
My heart is full knowing Leo can come home finally… I left in a puddle of grateful tears.❤

If you ever end up in such a tragedy as the death of a loved one, I highly recommend Stevenson Funeral Home.. They’re some of the nicest, most generous people I’ve met out here.
