Your Feedback Needed Now for Updating Funeral Rule

You are invited and strongly encouraged to request that the national Funeral Rule be updated. The Federal Trade Commission has finally opened the comment period that we’ve been awaiting. Please ask that the Rule require Funeral Homes to list ALL their standard prices online. This would put them in line with how most consumers these days shop – via the internet. It’s also important to have the FTC require standardized prices, so that customers can compare the prices for the exact same services.

Very few funeral homes do that. And the prices vary enormously. This is the big change for which that the Funeral Consumers Alliance nationally and all of us affiliates locally have been advocating.

Comments are due by April 14, 2020. Here’s an online link for public use:  https://www.consumer.ftc.gov/blog/2020/02/how-funeral-rule-working-you
