Preneed Funeral Contract

On July 1, 2006, the regulation of Preneed Funeral Contracts was transferred to the Department. The law requires that a funeral home be licensed to sell Preneed Funeral Contracts.  All monies received for a Preneed Funeral Contract must be deposited into a trust account or burial insurance policy.  Each Preneed Funeral Contract must be submitted to the Department accompanied by a $20 filing fee, part of which goes into the loss reimbursement fund.

There is an Initial/New Preneed Funeral Contracts Licensing fee of $250 and a renewal fee of $200.  The Preneed Funeral Contracts License must be renewed by September 30th of every odd-numbered year.

For a list of currently licensed Preneed Funeral Contract Providers, please see our Licensee Lookup page.

*Please note the Department's new physical address is 293 Greystone Blvd., Ste. 400 | Columbia, SC | 29210*
**Mailings may still be sent to PO Box 5757 | Columbia, SC | 29250-5757**
