June 26, 2006 Meeting: Pre-Paid Funeral Trusts, Good Buy or Financial Trap?

What are the advantages and disadvantages of paying for final arrangements in advance? What are the laws governing funeral trusts in Hawaii. How can you set up and pre-pay your own funeral plan, and what you can do to insure your plan is fulfilled in the event you have already purchased a plan.
