We work with MASA to offer travel protection should a death occur outside of a 75 mile radius from our funeral home. MASA TRS is a business division of MASA Global that offers Transportation & Relocation Protection Plan (TRPP) to the preneed funeral industry. TRPP is a funeral industry benefit that provides transportation coverage and complete peace of mind for consumers when they are more than 75 miles from their home or they have relocated/moved from their legal residence.
A funeral home's service area is very limited, and nobody knows where they will be when they pass away. The MASA TRPP benefit expands the service area, offering worldwide mortal remains repatriation to the original funeral home.
Consumers are faced with so many decisions during a very emotional time so pre-arranging funeral services just makes sense. They have already made a smart decision to plan ahead, but how can anyone guarantee where those services will be held?
The reality is that as people get older they end up moving away from their original homes not because they necessarily want to move, but because they are forced to move for health or family reasons.
