Removes Decision-Making from Grieving Loved Ones
Provides Simplicity at Time of Need
Gives Peace of Mind for You and Your Family
The Omega Society's fundamental goal at its founding was to protect surviving family members from falling prey to emotional overspending at a time of profound grief. Our Founder’s basic mission was to encourage individuals to make their own arrangements --ahead of time-- relieving their survivors from guilt ridden over spending and allowing their wishes to be carried out by their loved ones completely guilt-free. This is the value of making pre-arrangements.
The Omega Society offers two types of pre-arrangements:
Pre-Registration with Pre-Payment
By pre-registering, you provide The Omega Society -- in advance -- the necessary vital information for a death certificate, along with the required releases and signatures. It also allows for the your specific instructions for the disposition of your remains. It is also valuable in preparing for an imminent death of a loved one.
All information is kept on file -- for life -- at our central office, and wallet ID cards are provided with instructions to call The Omega Society in the event of death, along with our 24-Hour Emergency Toll Free telephone number. There is no charge to pre-register.
This simple step will relieve surviving loved ones from the burden of scrambling for unfamiliar information, tracking down family members for signatures, and making costly emotional decisions -- all at a time of profound emotional distress.
This common sense approach to final arrangements is the reason why thousands of individuals have chosen to pre-register with The Omega Society. It is comforting to know that The Omega Society will always be there for you at time of need, even if no pre-registration paperwork has been signed ahead of time.
Pre-Registration with Pre-Payment
Many choose to take their pre-arrangements one step further by also locking in a price for services without fear of future price increases. This provides loved ones with the complete peace of mind in knowing all arrangements are completely planned and paid for as well.
Unlike many competitors, 100% of all Omega Society prepaid funds are invested in their entirety. We do not pay sales commissions from the funds you've paid. We also do not self-manage our own prepaid accounts, nor do we profit from annual administrative fees charged on co-mingled prepaid accounts, which can add up to millions of dollars of profits to funeral homes annually. Our investment of choice is an individual life insurance policy through Homesteaders Life Co., a 100+ year old company, whose entire business is investing pre-paid funds for independently owned funeral homes.
Our Pre-Payment Plan offers appreciation in value over time in a separate non-comingled investment, without the headache of recurring annual W-9's for interest reporting on taxes. Additionally, both The Omega Society and Homesteaders Life's years of unblemished reputations provides an added comfort in knowing your funds -- and the companies -- are secure and will be there when needed.
The Omega Society's Pre-Payment Plan is a separate and distinct plan with a guaranteed, fixed price. Our Pre-Payment Plan has special competitive pricing:
$1,045 - Coverage within Southern California
$285 - Travel Coverage Throughout the World
Our Pre-Payment Plan includes more services than our basic cremation package, which are all included: transportation within a 100 mile radius, upgraded urn, shipping cremains within the US or scattering at sea.
You can even purchase the World-Wide Travel Coverage separately without pre-paying for cremation services
Again, 100% of prepaid funds are invested, so none of your funds are used to pay sales commissions, nor are they used to provide profits to a funeral home before services are even rendered.
For those who require "spending down" to qualify for Medi-Cal, prepaying for services is a perfect solution. The funds are invested in an "Irrevocable" policy, which means the funds are non-refundable and are therefore excluded by Medi-Cal as an asset. Since final arrangements will inevitably be needed, this is a useful means to "spend down" and have services arranged for ahead of time. You may add more services to the policy if you require a larger amount of funds to be spent.
Please contact The Omega Society to find out more information on our Pre-Payment Plan, especially if you have received a direct mail solicitation, or attended a seminar hosted by another cremation provider like Neptune Society, Trident Society, Smart Cremation, or even your local funeral home. You will be extremely surprised by our much lower pricing as well as our conservative investment strategy. And, we promise, a commission driven salesperson won't hound you!
