But what happens if I move? PMA is specific to the state of Washington, but there are many memorial societies around the country. One place to look for a similar organization near your new home is the website of the national Funeral Consumers Alliance (FCA). Some of those local groups will honor your PMA membership, though they may charge a $15 transfer fee. Reach out to them directly with any questions.
