In a World with Only Two Guarantees

For over 90 years, Dennis Sweeney Funeral Home’s tradition of reliability stands as our guarantee that we’ll be here to honor your pre-arranged plans. Choosing us gives you security and peace of mind.

Guaranteed Protection:
A one-time payment means you are protected for the full cost of a funeral regardless of when you may need it. Through pre-payment, funeral costs are frozen at today’s price levels, ensuring that inflation will not alter the quality of your service.

Affordable Short-term Payment:
The premiums can be paid in one lump sum amount or spread out over a twelve-month period, leaving no unexpected financial burden.

Quality Funeral Service:
Dennis Sweeney Funeral Home’s long reputation for organized and well-planned services means your family will get the finest degree of understanding and assistance. A professional service means fewer headaches, last-minute decisions and less stress for a bereaved family.

Benefit Transferability:
If you move, Dennis Sweeney Funeral Home will pay the attained value for services to another funeral home.

No Age Restriction:
These plans can be written for any age — from birth to 100. Regardless of your health, we have a plan that can be adapted to your needs.

Reduction of Assets:
Pre-arrangements are endorsed by the Commonwealth of Massachusetts as a way to reduce assets. This helps meet state and federal requirements for Medicaid or nursing home care.

Massachusetts regulations currently provide that funds on deposit in irrevocable pre-need accounts may not be withdrawn by a funeral home unless the account is closed following death.

Our funeral director, Dennis Sweeney, can visit you in your home to help you select a plan that best suits your needs. There’s no time like the present.
