McLean Funeral Directors offers the following methods of securing the funeral services. One or multiple selections may be used to secure service. After having selected the funding method, we will handle all necessary paperwork to complete your selection.

Your payment options are as follows:

  • Payment with a Bank or Insurance Pre-Funded Funeral Contract.
  • Verifiable, Assignable Life Insurance (The insurance policy must be verified to be in force, the correct beneficiary must be identified, it must be assignable and non-contestable and the death not a Medical Examiners Case).
  • Credit Card (Visa, Mastercard, American Express, Discover)
  • Check
  • Cash



You may select one of two ways to pre-pay for a funeral:

Pre-payment in Full
The first method is to make payment in full. This will guarantee the price of the funeral and merchandise selected.

Pre-funding Through Life Insurance
Pre-funding funerals is a growing trend in America because of the peace of mind that comes from having one's affairs in order. Funding those arrangements with insurance coverage or a trust are the two ways we handle pre-funding.
