At the Mattera Funeral Home, we offer a wide range of preplanning options. After discussing particular needs and wishes with each family, we will give you a price quote at today’s prices.

You have the option of pre-paying or pre-funding a funeral. If you do wish to pay for a pre-arranged funeral we offer both insurance and trust funding. If these are paid in full, we guarantee that there will be no additional charges to the family, as long as the original contract is not changed.


Our trust is through the Pennsylvania Funeral Directors Association program SecurChoice with PNC Bank,Trustee, Erie, PA. The Mattera Funeral Home will not accept payment directly for pre-arranged funerals. Under the Pennsylvania Funeral Directors Law, all monies received by a funeral director are to be trusted with a banking institution within the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania within 30 days.

  • We offer a variety of insurance products for individuals.
  • Under both programs, checks are made out to the respective company.
  • Under both insurance and trusting, the family will receive a letter from the appropriate insurance company or SecurChoice informing them that they have received payment.

If you choose not to totally fund a funeral, then prices will be subject to the prevailing prices at the time of death.

We would be more than happy to assist you with any of your pre-planning needs, for more information please contact us at
