What is Final Expense Insurance?
Final Expense Insurance is also known as pre-need, burial, and funeral insurance. This type of insurance is a whole life insurance policy that is intended to cover the cost of one's funeral expenses. These types of policies have a death benefit that generally ranges from $5,000-$35,000. The death benefit would be paid to whoever is named as the beneficiary. This policy is the same as pre-paying for your funeral expenses. You may even choose to select your funeral home, type of service, flowers, headstone, burial plot, and other relevant expenses. This will help you lock in the best price as the cost of funerals continues to increase annually.
Final Expense Insurance is a way to insure that you don't leave any burdens behind for your beneficiary. Your policy pay out is guaranteed as long as your premium payments are current. The cash amount is given to your beneficiary in the form of a check from the insurance company at the time of your passing. Your family can use this cash for any expenses they need to take care of, for example, funeral and burial expenses, plus any unpaid medical bills.
The face amount will never decrease and the premiums will never increase, and you will never be cancelled as long as your premium payments are kept current.
Our families are the most important part of our lives. We want to protect them now and in the future. One definite way to do that is through a Final Expense Insurance Policy.
