A Life Long Commitment to the Funeral Profession

A word from Benji:

Growing up in the funeral profession has given me a unique perspective on preneed. Spending my entire adult life in preneed has given me the experience. I am committed to providing preneed services to funeral homes, funeral directors, and families by doing it the RIGHT way.

For too long preneed has been viewed within the profession as a necessary evil. It is time to change this by ensuring preneed is done correctly and in unison with your excellent reputation within the community.


We are a strategic marketing partner of Homesteaders Life Insurance Company, the leading preneed provider in the country.


We tailor a marketing plan to fit your business and market.


We are dedicated to growing your preneed and atneed business through ongoing management and support.

About Foothills Planning Services

Foothills Planning Services

Foothills Planning Services was started in 2009 by A. Benjamin Cumbie, IV.

Benji Cumbie is a fifth generation funeral director born and raised in the funeral business. His family hails from the upstate of South Carolina. Benji grew up cutting grass, washing cars, and erecting tents for his father’s funeral home. He spent much of his free time growing up around the funeral home observing the business. Though always fond of the business, he did not realize his desire to enter it until his second year in college. While working a funeral he had an epiphany and realized how much he really enjoyed helping families.

After graduating with a Bachelor of Science Degree in Business Management from Clemson University in 1999, Benji began his career in pre-planning. He started in Charleston, South Carolina but soon made the move to North Carolina. Benji became a full time pre-planner at a funeral home in the Raleigh, North Carolina area in January of 2000.
