Always ask to see the individual's license and make sure it is a current license. Only licensed individuals may meet with families to make funeral arrangements. Apprentices may not make pre-need funeral arrangements or sign a pre-need funeral contract. Apprentices may not sign at-need contracts.
You may cancel your “pre-need” funeral arrangements at any time and receive the funds initially submitted as well as any interest earned on those funds.
In Maryland, you are not required to buy a casket if you choose to be cremated. However, a type of suitable container may be required.
In Maryland, the law does not require that embalming be done. However, embalming may be required by the funeral home if extended viewing is requested. In some cases, when transporting a body out-of-state or out of the country, the transportation carrier or receiving state or country may require embalming. You may not be charged for unauthorized embalming.
