Final expense insurance, also known as burial insurance, is designed to cover the bills that your loved ones will face after your death. These costs will include medical bills and funeral expenses. Final expense insurance is also known as burial insurance.

Who Needs Final Expense?
Final expense insurance is permanent insurance – it doesn’t expire (as long as premiums are paid) and it carries a cash value over time. Because the death benefit of the policy (typically $5,000-$30,000) tends to be less than the benefit of traditional insurance, the premiums tend to be more affordable for those on a fixed budget. This makes it an attractive option for seniors looking to cover their end-of-life expenses.
This type of insurance isn’t just for seniors. Anyone concerned about leaving their loved ones unprepared when they pass should consider taking out a life insurance policy on themselves. Getting multiple quotes – including a final expense quote – can help you determine what type of life insurance is best for you.
How Much Does Final Expense Cost?
The exact cost of your final expense will depend on your age. Unfortunately, the older you are,the larger the premiums. This is because insurance companies take on more risk when insuring older folks, given the fact that they’re statistically closer to death. If you buy final expense insurance when you’re 45, you’ll pay less each month than if you wait to purchase until you’re 75.
Once a Final Expense policy is in force the premiums are locked in at that rate for the rest of your life.
Final Expense rates are very affordable and be customized to meet each individuals needs.
