ABOUT US

Ideal Tributes has a simple mission – to continue the heritage and traditions of the funeral homes in their care, and to deepen their ties to the communities they serve. For more than 20 years, founders Glenn & Tiffany Blumenstein have been driven by their commitment to helping people in their time of need. This means working with them to plan the ideal memorial for their loved ones…one that’s based on their wishes, not some predefined process that has been around for decades. Glenn’s belief that “this is a calling, not a job” is one that is shared by all of their employees, and has helped create a culture of Dedicated Service that is at the forefront of everything they do.

PAYMENT POLICY

We understand that losing someone you love is an emotional and life-changing experience. Consideration of any financial ramifications is very difficult. We hope to help you plan a tribute in a way that is both meaningful to you and your family and also honors the life of your loved one.

Payment prior to cremation or burial:

We request payment in full the day prior to planned services. If for any reason a balance remains due you will be billed at your home within 14 days. The balance will be due in 30 days. If you are unable to pay the balance in that time, late payment and interest charges will be applied.

Some of the payment methods we accept include:

1. C ash, Check, Money Order, or Cashier’s Check

2. Cr edit Card (Visa, MasterCard, Discover, and American Express) – payment by credit card for cash advances will have an additional 3% fee added.

3. Insur ance Policy with the beneficiary’s consent. The policy can be used as payment for the funeral expenses. Insurance assignment is acceptable if the following criteria are met:

• The policy is verified by us and all documentation is signed preceding the funeral.

• The policy is as signable and payable directly to the funeral home.

• The policy must be non-contestable (if in the contestable period, the policy will not be accepted as a form of payment).

• Pr e-Arranged and Pre-Paid Funerals

4 In some c ases, the deceased’s estate must pay for funeral expenses. In these

i nstances we request that a family member take the financial responsibility for funeral e xpenses and then file for reimbursement with the estate.

It is our policy to provide funeral services to all those within our community, and we do not wish for anyone to be limited by finances; if financial hardship is an issue, we ask that you contact us to speak more about the options that we can provide.
