My Father purchased policies from Trident for both him and my mom many, many years ago. My father passed away five years ago and Trident handled everything beautifully. My mom passed suddenly in April and I was left to take care of her body as she died at home and due to Covid-19, the coroner didn’t take her body because she died from natural causes. I didn’t even know at that point if Trident was still in business since the policy was purchased so long ago. I found their number from an internet search and they were great. They had her information immediately available to schedule the process right away. Two young men came within the hour and were nicely dressed, very sincere, and kind to the situation. I was impressed with how much care and respect they showed me and my mom as they took her away.
The next day, I received a call from Jose at the Laguna Woods office. He was also very kind and supportive. He walked me through the process and sent over appropriate paperwork with an explanation as to what exactly he needed. The whole process went very quickly and smoothly. Overall, very impressed with the professionalism and sympathy everyone at Trident showed during this very difficult time.

Excerpt from the Cremation Answer Book
What documents and signatures are needed?
A death certificate is required by law, and is completed by Trident Society with the necessary information provided by the family. Permits for cremation cannot be obtained until the medical authorities provide these signatures.
This certificate will be delivered to the physician and medical examiner for the listing of the official cause of death and the required legal signatures.
Realize that cremation service providers have no control over the length of time necessary for these signatures to be obtained. Autopsies and medical records may delay signatures by physicians and medical examiners.
