Benefits of owning a life insurance policy to cover your final expenses
Final expense insurance (or burial insurance) can help relieve the burden of funeral planning. We'll explore details of guaranteed issue life insurance.
Anyone who has ever had to assist with funeral arrangements for a loved one who didn't have life insurance knows how stressful it can be. Not only does it take a toll on us emotionally, it can often put significant financial stress on us as well. The last thing we want to do is put our loved ones in that same situation when it comes to our own funeral.
Do you currently have life insurance? If not, have you ever considered how the costs of your funeral will be covered? Did you know the average funeral typically costs around $8,000? Would the cost of your funeral create a financial burden if your family members had to pay for it? Final expense insurance (sometimes called burial insurance or funeral insurance) can ease the financial burden and stress on grieving loved ones by covering those costs.
