Why Be a Member?

What happens if you move? Your membership is recognized by the national organization, Funeral Consumers Alliance. Most states have a local affiliate group similar to PMA. If you move, visit the FCA website to find a local group. If one exists, the local group will honor your membership and may charge a $15 transfer fee. If you're a snowbird and live part time in another state, your membership is reciprocal and will be honored if death occurs in that state. If a local FCA group doesn't exist in your new state, contact us for more information at or 206.325.0489.
