How did Homesteaders get involved in the funeral industry (History)?
Hoesteaders formed in 1905 as a fraternal society focused on providing insurance for final expenses. By 1910, we had provided secure funding for more than 20,000 members. We mutualized in 1939 into what is now known as Homesteaders Life Company and have been owned by – and accountable to – our policy owners ever since.
To date, Homesteaders has helped hundreds of thousands of families gain peace of mind through secure advance funeral plans. In more than century – through two world wars and the Great Depression – we have never failed to pay a claim.
Homesteaders has emerged as a national leader in funeral funding and is the trusted, reliable and secure choice for thousands of funeral providers across the country. We are proud to work alongside those professionals every day, helping them design a better farewell for the families they serve.
