Transfer Existing Funeral Plans
Since opening the new Callaway-Jones Funeral and Cremation Center, families have been asking if an existing pre-need policy for your funeral that was written somewhere else can be transferred to Callaway-Jones. The answer is yes, absolutely.
Why families are doing it:
Bryan-College Station and the Brazos Valley continues to grow daily, with many of us relocating our beloved parents, aunts, uncles and grandparents here to join us, to be closer to doctors and hospitals. And, as is typical of the generation before ours, they took care of making their final wishes formal when they were in their 50s and 60s, so they’d have their affairs in order, for the future. Funeral insurance policies belong to the individual, not the funeral home that wrote the policy. You can assign it to any service provider you prefer
Here is how it works:
If a death has occurred, your family member who’s seeing your final arrangement plans through can contact us, and we’ll accept your policy and follow it in its entirety, with no surprise costs to you or add-ons. That’s the peace of mind we offer you.
As you may know, we have our Advance Planning Specialist, Sarah Conway. If you’d like to visit with her, or with me, please call or come by our funeral center. We encourage pre-planning questions and discussions, whether or not you’re ready to make final decisions. The more you know about your choices now brings you peace of mind and time to think about what you’d really like to have when your family and friends gather to remember you.
For families choosing burial:
Existing policy holders will just need to change the assignee to Callaway-Jones. Our office can help you complete this change. Once this is accomplished, we fulfill everything that was stated in your policy. If a church funeral was requested, and the church was originally in their hometown, and you’re members of a local church here, we can help you reach out to your church for their availability for the service at a day and time of your choosing.
We have caskets for your choosing that are just like the ones specified in your contract (color, decoration, etc.). If military honors are requested in your senior’s plan all we need is their DD-214 form and we will take care of contacting the veterans group for military honors at the service.
For families choosing cremation:
If cremation was your loved one’s choice, we have our own Magnolia Suite here for a private family gathering/viewing prior to the cremation process. The family can remain during the cremation, with the curtain closed or open for final goodbyes. We have a large selection of cremation urns that you’ll find meet the one chosen by your loved one.
