Why Choose Abbey Cremation?
First of all, if you are finding out about our company because of the loss of a loved one, please accept our deepest sympathies. Losing a loved one is never easy, but at Abbey Cremation, we do our best to try and make it a little bit easier.
It only takes about 3 minutes on Google to see how many cremation companies there are in Connecticut. And at first, they all look pretty much the same, so the natural thought may be to go to whoever is cheapest. Well, before you go by who is cheapest, why don't you take a moment to let us tell you why we are the best.
Abbey Cremation Service has been in the cremation industry for over 25 years, however, the family that owns Abbey has been involved in the funeral industry since 1921. So if you make a decision based off of experience, Abbey Cremation is your pick. If you do a little bit of research on any of these cheap companies you will find that they have only been in business for 3 years, or maybe 5 years ago they had a totally different company name. That is not how we are over at Abbey. We have decades of experience at your disposal and are available to help you along the way.
Obviously if you are in mourning, the opportunity is there to be taken advantage of, and a lot of funeral or cremation companies will do just that. But not at Abbey. That is why we offer set prices, the ability to pre-pay for your service, and we offer a price match. So if you come across a cheaper option, just let us know, and we will match their end price. It is also important to know that a lot of these companies who say they only cost $$550.00 actually end up costing $1800.00 when everything is all added up. That is just another reason why you should trust Abbey Cremation Services in this difficult time. We say it time and time again, when it comes to the final decisions for your loved one, do you really think the Cheapest option is the way to go? Why don't you let Abbey Cremation Service show you how valuable a cremation really is
Changes in Title 19 & Medicaid
As of July 1st, 2015, the state of Connecticut has reduced the amount of money that it will give to families of citizens who receive TItle 19 or Medicaid from $1800.00 to $1400.00. This is a big deal for anyone who is currently receiving Title 19 or Medicaid benefits.
Before this change, a lot of funeral companies throughout the state would be able to provide total coverage for a traditional burial under Title 19 or Medicaid even if that meant they had to take a little bit of a loss. However, with the coverage now dropping to $1400.00 chances are you will not find a funeral company who will do a traditional burial without any out of pocket expenses. This of course means that Cremation might now be the only available option for your family. With a limit of $1400.00, Abbey Cremation can handle the entire cremation, as well as provide an urn and transport of the deceased, with little to no out of pocket expenses.
