Funeral Pre-Planning @ The Senior Center
Apr 9 @ 10:00 am – 11:00 am
Funeral Pre-Planning @ The Senior Center  | Iowa City | Iowa | United States

What is funeral preplanning? Can I preplan

without prepaying? Do I have to be embalmed?

Doesn’t state law require a vault? Can I have

visitation and a service before body donation?

Isn’t it against the law to scatter cremated remains

in a lake? What are funeral benefits for military

veterans? What happens if I die away from home?

Can I write my own obituary? How can I make

all of this easier for my family? Can cremated

remains be divided to keep some, scatter some,

and bury some? How can I reduce funeral costs?

This session will explore what you need to know

and why you might want to consider preplanning,

for yourself and for your family.

Fee: Free
