What You Need To Know

  1. Assist you in becoming an informed, self-sufficient consumer who understands the Funeral Rule, know you have a right to price lists, price quotes by phone, and the right to pick and choose the goods and services you want and can afford. Helps you understand that love is not based on the amount of money you spend.

  2. Members get the contracted price with local funeral home for their cremation and funeral needs, which is the lowest around. Check our cemetery and mortuary survey to compare prices
  3. Provide guidance so you can have a dignified, simple and affordable funeral or cremation.

  4. We can and will do an immediate sign-up for a family member who died unexpectedly–call 210-341-2213 to schedule an emergency meeting to get your loved one signed up so you can take advantage of the tremendous savings our membership offers.

Meeting Your Personal Needs

  1. Provide guidance for your personal pre-planning, and how to hold a conversation with your family about your last wishes. You have not paid for your funeral by joining the FCA. And we do not prepay–especially at the prices we as FCA members receive, but if you are going to insist on prepaying then our contract funeral homes will do so at their regular prices only–buyer beware!

  2. Provide forms for compiling your personal end of life wishes and information needed for the certificate of death.

  3. Provide personal telephone consultation(s)

  2. Conduct a cemetery survey all even-numbered years.

  3. Provide a semi-annual newsletter.

  4. Provide a speakers bureau and will be happy to do a presentation for any group who would like to become informed consumers.
