Preneed sales agents are registered through holders of Preneed Certificates of Authority (certificate holders). Only an authorized signer of a certificate holder may register, terminate, or renew preneed sales agents.
Each person selling preneed merchandise and services and/or cemetery merchandise and services must be registered. A certificate holder must have at least one registered preneed sales agent. The certificate holder and preneed sales agent applicant must complete their respective part of Form No. AL-PNS-4 (10/2023). The completed form along with the $33.00 registration fee, should be mailed to:
Alabama Board of Funeral Services

Montgomery, AL 36106
Any application to the Board for a license, certificate, or registration made on behalf of a sole proprietorship, firm, corporation, partnership, joint venture, or limited liability company for a certificate of authority to sell preneed contracts shall be sworn to by each:
- Owner, partner, member, shareholder, and/or other principal of such entity controlling a 10% or greater interest in the entity; and
- Any other individual(s) or officer(s) as may be needed to legally bind the entity.
A background check fee of $38.25 is required with each application.
