Press Release (ePRNews.com) - SHERMAN OAKS, Calif. - Jun 02, 2020 - LendingUSA, a leading point-of-sale financing solution, is featured in the June issue of The Director, published by the National Funeral Director’s Association (NFDA), which is distributed to over 13,000 funeral homes across the country. In the feature, LendingUSA shared data from a recent survey the company conducted that sheds light on the challenges funeral professionals are facing in 2020.
Key takeaways from the survey responses include:
· Funeral professionals ranked the top challenges facing funeral homes as planning services that fit within the family’s budget (48%) and collecting payment (31%).
· 70% of funeral professionals said that families today are less prepared for the costs associated with funeral services than they were 10 years ago.
· 66% of funeral professionals said less than half of families have life insurance policies.
You can view the full survey results here. For funeral homes across the country, this data points to a common challenge: when families are less prepared, funeral homes must adapt to meet their needs. Additionally, as funeral homes also battle the effects of the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, even more families will find themselves unprepared for the costs associated with funeral services. This means that funeral homes must step up to offer better payment options and give families the flexibility they need.
LendingUSA is exclusively endorsed by the NFDA as a financing solution for at-need families. “Because our platform was built with funeral directors and families in mind, we’re the preferred lending partner for funeral homes,” says Camilo Concha, CEO and Founder of LendingUSA. “We’re grateful to our partners at the NFDA for highlighting this important data and what it means for professionals in this industry.”
