Less hassle, more opportunity.

Change is certain, and Forethought can help you navigate through the challenges you may face. In today’s business environment, it takes more than one leading product or service. It takes a financial partner who can provide a comprehensive package of financial solutions to meet the needs of your business and the families you serve.

We’ve been a leader in the preneed business for more than 25 years. With strong financial ratings and rock-solid financials, we’re thinking ahead to help you help the families you serve.

The insurance assignment program offered by Forethought Capital Funding, Inc. (FCF) is a specialized program offered through funeral homes and cemeteries. For a small fee, this program provides families with quick access to insurance policy benefits through an assignment process. An assignment is a great way to eliminate the worries of a financial burden for a funeral on families and accelerate payment to you.

The benefits of at-need insurance assignments with FCF:

  • Fast access to funds

Traditional insurance companies average 60 to 90 days to process a claim, but they may take even longer to work through legal or administrative issues. With our assignment program, cash proceeds will be advanced within 24 hours of policy acceptance. Quick access to funds can help families pay for their funeral and other end-of-life expenses, including medical bills and mortgage payments.

  • A simple process

Dealing with the loss of a loved one is a particularly stressful time for families. We want to make things as easy as possible for you to help them with a simple process and minimal paperwork. A short irrevocable assignment form, including policy and beneficiary information, is all that’s needed to start the process.

  • Convenient alternative

The assignment program provides a convenient alternative to help ensure that services are funded prior to being performed.
