New York State Funeral Directors Association

If a Funeral Home Closes

The funeral home must, by law, inform each individual who has prefunded a funeral with them of this fact. They must also advise the consumer of their right to transfer their prearrangements to any other funeral home they choose or, if revocable, receive a refund of their total deposited amount plus all interest earned. The New York State Bureau of Funeral Directing may also be of assistance if the funeral home goes out of business.
