The State of Florida Department of Financial Services, Division of Funeral, Cemetery and Consumer Services, regulates Funeral Directors, Embalmers, Cemetery, Direct Disposer, Monument Establishments and Preneed Agent licensing.
The division also protects the public by establishing minimum contract requirements for preneed funeral purchases, ensures that cemetery grounds are properly maintained, establishes qualifications for the embalming, funeral directing, cremation and direct disposition process, and has enforcement rights for those practitioners that violate the law. Florida Statutes Chapter 497.450-497.468 provides the details for preneed sales and the licensing process.
The premium that you pay for a Florida Preneed License Surety Bond is dependent on credit or financial statements and the bond amount required.
