A well-funded Funeral / Burial Insurance Policy will take care of all necessary expenses.  As such, families should plan on an unexpected passing so that the death of a loved one will not burden family members with a funeral’s cost.  Fortunately, either funeral, burial, or cremation Insurance really helps to avoid unplanned large expenses and potential debt to the immediate family and especially mom.    

Also as a company, we go the extra mile to present the facts and fully explain Funeral, Burial, and Cremation Insurance at no cost.  Now there are other companies that do this, but we are different.  Furthermore, we separate ourselves by providing the facts without a high powered sales pitch.  

Funeral Insurance Facts

We pride ourselves in providing all of the facts and being totally transparent.  So, did you know that Social Security provides a lump sum Death Benefit of $255?  Congress passed the law providing this death benefit way back in 1954. Sixty plus years ago that amount could pay for most of the funeral costs.   But today, funerals cost thousands of dollars, and according to the National Funeral Directors Association, the median cost of a funeral with burial is about $7,181. The median cost for a cremation is about $6,100.  To most living in the United States, that’s a lot of money that most people don’t have readily available!

Also, the proper burial insurance policy should cover the costs of the funeral and or cremation so your family doesn’t have to dip into savings.  As such, no one wants to burden their family and that’s why obtaining a Funeral Insurance Policy can be so beneficial.  Finally, Burial Insurance is a fine investment. 

There are basically five (5) pros and cons of purchasing Funeral / Burial Insurance.

Pros Cons
Qualification is very easy. The insurance policies are specific, and hence, have lower benefits than many other insurance policies.
There are few to no health questions to answer. Good Health is not a prerequisite, and therefore, discounts of good health are not provided.
A medical exam is not needed. Sometimes the policy rates are a bit higher than the usual Life Insurance policies.
To prevent a burden on the family, there are methods and options to arrange services and payments prior to death. The total paid in premiums will be close to the actual funeral costs.
These insurance policies usually accumulate a cash value for use while the policy is active. Usually, no extra funds are available in the policy after the funeral.
