The University of Pennsylvania has added funeral assistance services to its employee benefits lineup.

The university’s life insurance carrier, Aetna Inc., Hartford, will be providing funeral planning services and “at need” funeral and concierge services from Everest Funeral Package L.L.C., Houston, for faculty members and staff members who are enrolled in the university’s life insurance plans.

The services will be available to the parents, in-laws and other relatives of covered employees for an additional fee, the university says.
