Cost of Sea Burial: $_______________. Arriving at the cost of your Plan-of-Action
is based upon endless variables—too many to list. You and I must talk openly and
as often as it takes to come to a mutual agreement. This is the only logical method
Methods of Payment:
All monies due must be paid in full prior to initiation of burial operations.
Personal check: Check must ‘clear’ prior to initiation of burial operations.
Credit card: Full or partial payments can be made. Electronic bank transfer
utilizing all major credit cards is easily accomplished on-line. Go to
www.naturespassage.com/requestquote.php and follow directions.
Payments for preplanning a sea burial operation can be accomplished as follows:
Payment in full: We suggest you purchase an annuity that will earn interest over
time. When ‘that’ time comes, interest earned will off-set much of the cost of the sea
Long-term payment: We suggest you purchase a term life insurance policy
covering the total cost of the sea burial. Nature’s Passage is the beneficiary.
Partial payments made to Nature’s Passage: We will accept random payments
and establish an account in your name in our Ledger. As an incentive, each
payment will earn a 2% gratuity which is applied against the gross amount due.
You’ll be notified when your account is paid in full. If, upon your death, your
account doesn’t have requisite funds to fully compensate Nature’s Passage for sea
burial operations, your sea burial will not commence until your account is paid in
full from other resources.
