Cemetery Oversight


CEMETERY OVERSIGHT LICENSING BEGINS JULY 1, 2012. PLEASE SEE BELOW UNDER INDUSTRY NOTICES.
 

CEMETERY OVERSIGHT ACT

On January 17, 2010, Governor Quinn signed the Cemetery Oversight Act.  The Act, which took effect on March 1, 2010, makes Illinois one of the leading pro-consumer states in the nation.  Among the Act’s key protections is the establishment of a Consumer Bill of Rights. 

Under the Consumer Bill of Rights, a consumer is entitled to (1) purchase merchandise from a third-party vendor without incurring a penalty, (2) receive a standardized price list disclosing prices for all cemetery-related products, (3) obtain a burial contract that describes the exact location of the burial, (4) extend a “term burial,” which is a burial that is for a limited period of time, and (5) be protected from deceptive or unfair practices by the cemetery.

Cemetery Oversight
 


Consumers requesting information or wishing to make a complaint about a cemetery can call the Cemetery Consumer Helpline at   1-888-RLOVED1 (1-888-756-8331).
