About Advanced Planning Services
This early success led the company to make a greater commitment to expand its Preneed Insurance program and to become recognized as a premier supplier of Insurance Pre-funding Services for the funeral industry. As NGL’s Preneed program expanded and gained momentum, the company began to review the method it employed to deliver its programs to funeral professionals. This resulted in NGL deciding to change its product delivery system to one that utilized specialized distribution partners. Ed, along with interested NGL Preneed Sales Managers, began managing distribution of the new NGL Preneed program in certain Upper Midwestern states working initially with funeral home professionals who had a prior business relationship with them and NGL. Since 2004, the number of Preneed relationships with funeral professionals has increased significantly. APS now works with funeral homes in Wisconsin, Michigan, Minnesota, Ohio, Iowa, Mississippi and North Dakota.
