What is pre-need life insurance?

Pre-need life insurance allows families to prefund their prearranged funeral.

When someone purchases pre-need coverage, they work directly with a funeral home to plan their funeral and then buy a pre-need life insurance policy to cover the associated expenses of those funeral goods and services.

Pre-need life insurance differs from conventional life insurance in that the death benefit is assigned to a designated funeral home. This can help eliminate some of the burden put on family members when planning final arrangements because much of the work is already handled. The money is set aside and paid out directly to the funeral home within a few days. Providers also have the info needed for planning already captured, which can help streamline the process.

How do I prepay my final arrangements?

We offer both insurance and trust options for prepayment.

With Eirene, you have the choice of funding your final arrangements through a preneed insurance policy with TruStage Life of Canada or by having your prepaid funds held with Guaranteed Funeral Deposits of Canada (GFD). Our preneed insurance option can be paid in full, or with flexible payment plans up to 20 years. Our trust options requires payment in full or scheduled payments over one year, interest-free.

Who can enroll in Eirene's pre-need life insurance policy?

Any Canadian resident up to the age of 99 can be enrolled.

Any Canadian resident up to the age of 99 can be enrolled. Payment terms and eligibility for TruStage products are determined by age and health. You do not need a medical exam to be enrolled, but you will be asked the following health questions to determine the type of coverage you qualify for:

1) Is the applicant currently confined to a hospital or nursing home, or has the applicant ever been diagnosed as having a terminal illness, Alzheimer's Disease, tested HIV positive or advised that he/she had AIDS-related conditions?

2) During the past five years, has the applicant ever been treated for or been diagnosed as having:


  • Disease or disorder of the heart, circulatory or vascular systems, stroke or any cancer?
  • Disease or disorder of the lungs, liver or kidney, alcoholism or drug abuse?
  • Brain disorder or tumor, seizure, paralysis, psychosis, lupus or multiple sclerosis?
  • Blood disease or disorder, or both high blood pressure and diabetes together?

If you answer "yes" to any of the health questions, there may be limited coverage during the first 24 months.

How do I start the pre-need process?

If you have chosen Eirene for your pre-need arrangements, we will set up a meeting to discuss payment options.

The pre-need process should begin at home. Initiate a conversation with family and friends to discuss end-of-life choices and available resources to fund funeral plans. During this process, it can be helpful to consult with funeral providers, like Eirene, to get more information. You can send us an email at support@eirene.ca or give us a call at 647-955-4214. We can also arrange a meeting through Zoom, Skype, or other virtual meeting technology. Our staff is there for any questions you may have about the cremation process and pre-need arrangements.

How is my money protected?

We partner with two financial institutions that ensure your funds will gain consistent, and conservative interest.

Licensed providers such as Eirene, are required to invest all funds associated with prepaid service contracts with safe, third-party financial institutions. We have no access to the money you set aside until the time of need, when your arrangements are put in place.

We partner with two financial institutions that ensure your funds will gain consistent, and conservative interest. The growth of your prepaid funds will offset future increases to the price of services and supplies that you select today.

Eirene is proud to work with financial partners with decades of experience in funeral funding and final expense solutions. We've partnered with Trustage Life of Canada (formerly TruStage Life) and Guaranteed Funeral Deposits of Canada (GFD) to ensure that your prepaid arrangements are protected.
