In the state of Indiana, funeral planning is impacted by new regulations set fourth. The new law, which is called HB 1287 provides for the regulation of funeral planning declarations. These declarations have to designate an individual to perform the specifications of the declaration. Should an action be brought to contest the declaration’s legitimacy, a surety bond, cash deposit or other security will be required to secure the storage expenses of the decedent’s remains at a hospital, nursing home, funeral home, or other establishment for the duration of the proceedings.
