Funeral Planning Services
Losing a loved one is never easy. Whether you’re dealing with an immediate loss or anticipating the loss of a family member in the near future, planning a funeral is emotionally draining and financially trying.
That’s why Penn offers special benefits to help you prepare for and deal with one of life’s most difficult times. Aetna, the University’s life insurance carrier, is partnering with Everest to provide funeral planning and funeral-related concierge service.
This service is available to faculty and staff enrolled in any of the University’s life insurance plans. Free advisor assistance is also available to spouses/partners and children. For a fee, you can also access services for your parents, in-laws, or other relatives.
Services include everything from price comparisons of local funeral homes to online planning tools, and even help with negotiating funeral home costs. Check Everest’s website for more details, or create an online profile and use their planning tools (use Enrollment Identification Code AETNA0003 when asked).
