Frequently Asked Questions


Can FCA pay for my loved one's funeral?


Sorry, we don't have the funds to pay for people's funerals, BUT ideas about where to find money and reduce costs to nearly nothing are on our Financial Aid" page.


What is the least expensive funeral home in my area?


To price compare at-a-glance using our price survey We are not affiliated with or sponsored by the funeral industry. 


The price list the police, hospice or hospital hand you is often incomplete!  We have seen them specifically leave off the cheapest mortuary!


In our price survey you can tell which funeral homes charge less, even if it doesn't list the specific item or service you want. Then reach out to them to confirm their prices for what you you want.


Will FCA help me do a family-directed funeral?

After receiving phone help one widower said, "I will be forever grateful for your help.  When I am on my feet again I will donate.  Everyone should know about what you do."
One member wrote,
"I appreciate all your work on research and letting others know.  I cringe every time I think of $12,000 to take care of a loved one after death.  That could help put a grandchild through college!"
