The estate is responsible for paying for funeral costs, but not always are estate funds immediately available. And it is possible the estate will not have enough money to cover the cost. Planning in advance — by prepaying for your services or by making sure funds are available to your agent — can help your family through this process. It is possible that a contract you sign could make you personally liable for the payment, so proceed carefully.
