Elevate Your Funeral Home's Future with Prelude

Let’s Make Preneed Personal

Prelude has reimagined pre-planning to help funeral homes make deeper and more valuable connections with preneed families, while enhancing profitability for Funeral Homes.

With cultural shifts and trends toward cremation, preneed can support your at-need business.

But most preneed offerings add more paperwork, less value, and less opportunity to do what you do best: build relationships. So, that's why we interviewed over 50 funeral directors and created Prelude.

See how much you could earn with Prelude.

Prelude offers some of the industry's highest commission rates on preneed policies.

“When I first saw what you all were doing with the letter I thought it was sweet, you know, nice. But then I watched how it moved someone quickly from something they were thinking of doing, to something that they must do. If you’re still thinking about it, you’re not going to do it, but if it touches your heart, you’re going to.”

— Robert Nunley, Nunley Funeral Home Director

If they die accidentally after the policy is issued, the entire face amount is paid.If the policy holder has no health issues, they receive a “first day issue,” which offers full benefit upon the first premium payment.
