Frequently Asked Questions

It is our mission to make the death care process as straightforward as possible.

What happens with the interest in my Precompose account?

As you pay towards your future death care, Recompose realizes 10% of the money as revenue. The rest is held in a trust account that cannot be used until after your death. This money is invested in low-risk investments and can’t be used by Recompose until services are provided. Interest accrued on these investments is retained by Recompose to make up for inflation and any future rise in pricing for our services.

Land Acknowledgement
Recompose acknowledges we make our lives and livelihoods on the lands of the Coast Salish People, specifically the Duwamish People. We honor with gratitude the Duwamish People past and present, the land itself, and the Duwamish Tribe. Colonization is an active, persistent process. Indigenous communities continue to be resilient in protecting their ecological and cultural lifeways and deathways despite ongoing oppression. Recompose respects, shares, and supports this commitment to climate healing and environmental justice. Join Recompose in contributing to Real Rent Duwamish.
