Worldwide Travel Protection Program

Americans are more mobile now than ever, traveling at record paces throughout the world. Are you prepared for an emergency away from home, such as an unexpected death? Most people aren’t, and the emotional and financial aspects of such an incident can be devastating.

Endorsed by the California Funeral Directors Association (CFDA), the  “Worldwide Travel Protection Plan” is available to all CFDA member firms.  This  unique plan is facilitated by International Emergency Assistance, Inc. (IEA™) America’s premier provider of Worldwide Travel Protection.

How the Plan Works


The plan is membership based. When death occurs more than 75 miles away from a plan member’s home residence, the Worldwide Travel Protection Plan guarantees each plan member that all arrangements will be professionally facilitated for no additional “out-of-town” charges. IEA™’s professional facilitators coordinate all communications between the sending mortuary, the family and the receiving funeral home.

Payments to IEA™ qualified service providers are guaranteed up to a maximum of $5,000 at no additional cost to the plan member.
