Pre-planning Stories

Thankful Our Grandfather had a Purple Cross Plan

Last year my Grandfather passed away and our family thought he had purchased some type of burial plan years ago. Grandfather had told our family that he did not want to be cremated but wanted to be buried in the national cemetery for veterans. Both of my parents had already passed away and we were responsible for the burial costs for our Grandfather. We did not have the money to fulfill Grandfathers wishes and we really did not know what to do. The funeral home could not provide their services without payment in full. The funeral home suggested that we call Purple Cross. When we called we explained our situation and the staff member helping us researched their records and found that Grandfather had purchased a Purple Cross Plan in 1982 for a death benefit of over $6,000.00. This was more then enough to pay for his funeral. His cemetery expenses were free because he was a veteran. We are so thankful Grandfather had a Purple Cross Plan. —Darcie, OR


Without Purple Cross We Could Not Have Fulfilled My Husband's Wishes

When we decided to purchase insurance to pay for our final expenses we inquired with several insurance companies but found that because of my husbands health he did not qualify for a plan in Washington State. We had heard that Purple Cross may be an option so we called Purple Cross and found that my husband did qualify for a Purple Cross Plan with insurance coverage. Less then two years later my husband passed away and Purple Cross paid the entire death benefit we had asked for. Without Purple Cross our family would not have been able to give my husband the services he had wanted. —Joanne, Seattle WA


Even With My Husband's Unexpected Death, Full Benefits Were Paid

My husband and I had a dry cleaning business and a representative of Purple Cross would use our service for his families dry cleaning needs. He explained what he did for families and my husband and I decided that we wanted to get a Purple Cross Plan for each of us. I wanted my husband to get a death benefit of $25,000.00 but he thought that a $20,000.00 plan would be best. Less then 90 days later my husband unexpectedly died and left me with a funeral bill and other debt. When I called the Purple Cross representative he  informed me that if all the information we provided was correct the full amount ($20,000.00) would be paid. In less the 30 days I received full payment from Purple Cross. I don't know what I would have done without Purple Cross. —Dee, WA
