Mutual Burial Associations

  • Certain mutual burial associations in North Carolina are now defunct for a variety of reasons (e.g. the sponsoring funeral establishment is now closed and/or the Secretary-Treasurer is deceased or otherwise incapacitated.)
  • Active mutual burial associations that are interested in receiving the transferred assets of these defunct mutual burial associations are encouraged to contact the Board office.
