Eirene partners with Assurant Life of Canada
Eirene , an online cremation and end-of-life technology platform, has partnered with Assurant Life of Canada (ALOC), affiliate of Assurant , a global provider of housing, lifestyle, and senior planning solutions that support and protect consumers and their purchases. The companies will offer Canadians the ability to prepay for cremation arrangement services online as part of their estate planning.
“Our partnership with ALOC delivers a solution designed to alleviate the financial burden often associated with traditional funeral arrangements. Canadians deserve to access trusted, no-pressure, affordable cremation arrangement services as part of their end of life planning. Families can now make their arrangements from the comfort of their own home with confidence and without stress. This partnership is part of our continued effort to help Canadians prepare for the future and put their end-of-life plans in place. We offer Canadians a no-pressure, transparent and simple process that eliminates the paperwork, ongoing coordination, guesswork and other burdens that can come along with funeral planning.” – Mallory Greene, CEO, Eirene.ca.
“Financial burden should not be a barrier to respecting your loved one’s wishes. Our innovative partnership brings a flexible, affordable and secure insurance policy with low premiums to Canadians. With Eirene.ca’s comprehensive online service, Canadians can have confidence that their wishes are in place and will be respected.” – Bernie Perri, AVP, Canada Sales, Assurant Global Preneed.
Through the partnership, Eirene.ca customers can purchase an ALOC life insurance policy. This “affordable” policy requires no medical and it ensures end-of-life arrangements are covered. At the time of death, the policy ensures payment for Eirene.ca cremation arrangement services, including the transportation of the deceased to the crematorium, the cremation service, government paperwork, and the return of the ashes to the family. With the ALOC insurance policy, consumers can have confidence that they are covered regardless of any future price changes for the service.
Eirene clients use the platform to arrange cremation services at the time of passing. Once confirmed online, Eirene works with local crematorium and transfer partners across Ontario to ensure the deceased is safely transported from their place of passing, cremated, and the ashes returned to their families. In addition to the new prepayment insurance solution, the Eirene.ca platform also offers a complimentary estate administration tool for families to close accounts and notify the government, along with unlimited proof of death certificates.
