Titan Casket and 1891 Financial Life Announce a New Partnership to Help Families Save Money

March 13, 2024

A new member benefit enables 1891 Financial Life’s members to pre-purchase their caskets, outside of traditional funeral home endeavors.

SCHAUMBURG, IL AND BOSTON, MA — Together Titan Casket and 1891 Financial Life, a community-based insurance carrier, have created a new partnership to offer a saving opportunity to 1891 Financial Life’s membership. Through this program, 1891 Financial Life members can purchase a casket at a significantly lower price than at a funeral home.

Here’s how it works: 1891 Financial Life members will be able to buy in advance from over 300 Titan Casket products, with the flexibility to pay upfront for the casket or in installments and receive a contract for safekeeping. At the time of need, Titan Casket will ship the product directly to the funeral home, free of charge.

“At 1891 Financial Life, we are looking beyond the bottom line, you will find that we are bringing additional value through new partnerships like Titan Casket. We’re proud to introduce our new partnership and together we not only secure the members’ financial futures, but we also support everyday life for our membership and the communities where they live,” said CEO Lisa Bickus.

Established in 2016, Titan Casket has disrupted the funeral industry by offering families the opportunity to purchase top-tier caskets and urns online at prices up to 50% lower than those offered by traditional funeral homes.  Funeral homes must accept delivery, per the Federal Trade Commission’s “Funeral Rule.”

“Our mission is to let families know they have options when it comes to death planning,” said CEO and founder Scott Ginsberg. “We’re thrilled to provide our education tools and support to 1891 Financial Life’s membership base. Together, we will help many families save money and time.”
