What is Funeral / Final Expense / Cremation Insurance?

Also known as: Funeral / Final Expense / Burial / End of Life / Cremation Insurance

We will all have “final expenses” one day, this is a guarantee!
Just the date and time are unknown.

Final Expense Whole Life Insurance Plans are specifically designed to cover the costs of funeral services (burials or cremations), and ANY other expenses you may leave behind when you pass.  It is insurance money, in the form of a check, that is sent to your loved ones (who are called the beneficiary) immediately upon your passing.

These Whole Life Insurance Policies ensure that loved ones left behind will have time to grieve and will experience peace of mind knowing the costs are going to be covered with insurance.  They won’t have to panic or scramble around trying to figure out how to pay for these expenses.  Your loved ones (beneficiary) will receive the insurance money quickly.  The check comes untaxed, and does not go through probate.

A life insurance policy is for the ones you leave behind – it says “I love you”.

Why Have a Final Expense Insurance Policy?

Funeral Insurance / Burial Insurance / Cremation Insurance / End of Life Insurance
Light bulb + smart idea

1). Because It’s Smart!

It’s MATHEMATICALLY Smart to Have a Final Expense Policy

In most cases, it takes years and years and years paying into a Final Expense insurance policy before it equals what your loved ones will receive when you die.  Many wealthy people understand this concept.  Have an insurance company pay your final expenses, not your loved ones!

Who will be sitting in front of a funeral director when you pass away? 

How will they pay?

*If you made just 1 payment and pass away, your family would be covered from the first day the payment is made!

2). Because Saving Money Is Hard To Do.

Trying to save money on your own

(the procrastination plan)

Your family will be paying your final expenses.

Who Applies for Final Expense Insurance?

Funeral / Final Expense / Burial / End of Life / Cremation Insurance
Small group of seniors

A life insurance policy says “I was always thinking of you”

While adults of all ages can purchase final expense insurance, this type of coverage is usually attractive to seniors looking to avoid leaving unpaid financial burden to their family or loved ones with their passing.  Most adults begin looking at age 45 – 50.  Most insurance companies sell policies up to the age of 80 or 85.  These plans are WHOLE LIFE Policies.  They DON’T cancel at a certain age.   Again.  They DON’T cancel at a certain age.  They last a lifetime provided you make the monthly payments on time.

Age and health is a big factor in determining your monthly rate (premium) for a Final Expense Whole Life Insurance Policy.  As we age, the need to worry about replacing income if you were to pass and leave a young family behind changes.  We begin to think about leaving our spouse or children with an expensive burial or cremation, and other monthly expenses.  When one person in a relationship passes, the one left behind usually loses a social security check, but the electric, gas, water, and sewer stay the same.  Sometimes folks want to replace their lost income with these policies, along with enough to cremate or bury.  Most mature adults will usually get a final expense insurance policy.  These types of policies pay the “beneficiary” (the one getting the check) VERY quickly and without being taxed.  NO TAXES.

Is it fair to have your loved ones take time away from their busy lives to sell a bunch of your things to pay for your final expenses, or would it be a kinder gesture to have them simply cash an insurance check and let them grieve your loss?

Other mature widowed/widower adults think about their children, and don’t want to leave their kids or relatives with their final expenses (the cost of burials or cremations).  We have plans that have our 3 guarantees, not just for the ultra-healthy, but also for the folks that have numerous medical problems.  We can help everyone!

Please Note: Sometimes adult children will purchase a plan for their parents instead of having to pay for the actual funeral / cremation.

Many of our plans are “Simplified Issue” which means the insurance company will check your medical records and a prescription database.  This type of underwriting will usually get you the best rates.  Other times, if you have numerous medical concerns, you will usually qualify for a “graded” or “guaranteed issue” policy.  With these plans, your monthly price will be a little higher, and you may have a waiting period (usually 2 years) for passing away due to “natural causes” (heart attack, etc.).  No matter which plan you qualify for, we can still get you a policy with the 3 promises above.  We’ve had folks that thought they couldn’t hang on for the 2 year waiting period…but they do!  If not, your family and loved ones will get back all of the money paid into the plan as premiums, plus interest!

Why Would I Need Final Expense Life Insurance?

Funeral Insurance / Burial Insurance / Cremation Insurance / End of Life Insurance

Final expense life insurance is usually sold to mature adults, usually around 45 – 85.  The insurance policy is taken out with the idea of paying for a funeral, burial or cremation, and other related costs.  Because the average funeral now costs between $10,000 and $20,000 or more, and a Cremation with a simple service around $5,000, it is important to plan ahead for these costs.

Final expenses left behind by you can cause bitter feelings and financial hardship for your family.

On top of your normal monthly bills, you could be leaving behind a lot of unpaid expenses that could be devastating for your family when you pass.  The cost of the obituary, storage units, trash bins, travel money for family to come to your service, medical bills, credit card debt, home repair costs, unpaid mortgage, loans, plus any back taxes on your home.  There are so many things that we just don’t think about.

Funerals financed by credit cards can cause animosity and fights among loved ones.

While most people don’t like to talk about their death, it is important to plan for it.  Final Expense life insurance will protect your loved ones from having to pay these costs out of their pocket, on their credit cards, having car washes, dipping into savings or trying to sell possessions in a hurry.  It protects them from losing out on money they could have had without having to sell possessions below their true value!

You WILL have final expenses one day, this is a guarantee, just the date and time are unknown.  The good news is that there is a smarter and more affordable way to cover these costs of one’s final expenses.  This is with final expense insurance.

Group of Seniors huddled together

“Just bury me in the backyard” is sticking someone else with your expenses.

We All Need to Look at Buying Final Expense Insurance Differently

We don’t buy this type of insurance for ourselves, we buy it for our family so they can celebrate our life, NOT dwell on our death and the debt that accompanies it.

♦ You may not be here, but when they see the check, your family will feel your love after your passing.

A Whole Life Insurance Policy is more valuable than a thing, it’s intangible – like LOVE.

What is Final Expense Insurance

How Does Final Expense Insurance Work?

Funeral / Final Expense / Burial / End of Life / Cremation Insurance

These policies are permanent whole life insurance plans rather than term life insurance that “Terminates”.  This means that these whole life policies do not have a specific time period of coverage.  It covers you your “whole life”.  So long as your monthly premiums (monthly bill) is paid, the policy will not expire.

There are different levels of Final Expense Insurance plans:

1). Level Benefit – This is EXTREMELY IMPORTANT 

This means that your coverage for “natural causes” (die in your sleep, have a heart attack, etc.) OR accidental deaths are covered, the day the application is approved or the effective date of the policy.

In order to qualify for a “Level” policy, you can usually have small minor medical conditions, but bigger things like Cancer, Congestive Heart Failure or Kidney Dialysis may prevent you from qualifying for “level” coverage.  You will have to apply (it’s SO important to be honest on your application) to see if you qualify for “level” coverage.

2). “Graded” or “Modified” 

These plans usually have a 24 month waiting period before the full benefit is in force for “natural causes”.  If you pass away in the first 2 years due to an “accident”, your policy WILL pay the whole benefit.  If you die in your sleep, have a heart attack etc. (all natural causes), the insurance company WILL NOT pay the benefit, HOWEVER, the insurance company will give you back all your money you paid in premiums, plus interest.  The amount of interest paid varies by insurance companies.

It’s VERY important to look at your insurance policy for the details on your graded or modified benefit for the details exactly.  Some may pay 30% of the policy amount the first year and 70% the 2nd year.  Again, look at your policy and ask questions before you sign!

3) “Guaranteed Issue” 

These plans have no health questions.  You cannot be turned down for this plan.  For someone with serious health issues, this option is the way to go.  The premiums will be high, but for someone who cannot get approved for any other type of policy, this will make sure your family is taken care of.  You will have a waiting period for dying of natural causes the first few years.  Please look at your policy for details.  If you are in relatively good health, DO NOT get a Guaranteed Issue policy.  You don’t need to wait 2 years for coverage for natural causes and you don’t need to donate your hard earned dollars to the insurance company.

Are You Pretty Healthy?

You may qualify for a MUCH LOWER RATE and IMMEDIATE COVERAGE!

What Are The Costs of a Final Expense Insurance Policy?

Funeral / Final Expense / Burial / End of Life / Cremation Insurance

The younger you are the lower the costs.  This is why it’s important to avoid procrastinating.  Your health status also plays an important factor.  In some cases, smoking also plays a role, depending on the insurance company.  The earlier in your life you start, the lower your monthly payment will be.  It’s never too late to begin looking into the process.  After the age of 85 your choices are very limited, however, and unfortunately, we are unable to assist you after age 85.

You won’t have to have blood work done, and no medical exam is needed.

Some folks tell us they want to think about it.  Sadly, they really “think about it” once someone has died, or if they’ve had a stroke, or a heart attack, or their doctor has just given them some bad news.  Don’t do this!

Procrastinating like this will change your monthly cost, and you may have a waiting period in your policy for passing away due to natural causes.  All of which could have been avoided.

Remember, our policies come with the promise that the premium will be locked in for your whole life.  Therefore, your costs will not go up – which is comforting knowing that being on a fixed budget, your rate will be constant.

Buying a life insurance policy says you cared enough about your family to handle your own final expenses.

Funeral Directors Need Payment at the Time of Service:  Sometimes folks will think to themselves that they have things in their homes that the kids and loved ones can sell once they pass.  We would strongly caution against this!  When your loved one is dealing with your passing,how fair is it to make them try to figure out how to sell your things?  And at the same time, meet with a funeral director or crematory that needs money right now! Your loved ones need time to grieve and to celebrate your life, not scramble around trying to sell your stuff!  The loss of a loved one is quite a bit to deal with, and adding the extra burden of having garage sales, or trying to determine the value of your gold or silver, or sell a home in an instant, is a poor way to get the most money for your items.  It’s a tremendous burden for the loved ones who are left behind to deal with.

If you’re looking for a way to pay for your funeral, burial or cremation costs, you have come to the right place!
We specialize in “Final Expense Insurance.”  Final Expense insurance is whole life insurance policy that lasts your WHOLE life.  It does not terminate after a set number of years.

What’s the Difference?  Term Life vs. Whole Life

Term Life Insurance

click here to open/close definition

Term life Insurance

Term life insurance provides coverage for a certain time period.  10 year “term” or 20 year “term”.  It is designed to protect and provide financially for your spouse and children in case you die prematurely.  If you have a term policy and die within that “term”, your beneficiaries receive the “death benefit”.

Term life insurance policies will often have terms of one year to 30 years.  Typically, the monthly premium (monthly payment) stays the same throughout the term of the policy.  The only way to collect on this type of policy is death.

Parents or spouses will usually choose a term length that goes along with the number of years their families would be most financially vulnerable.  How much would be needed if you were no longer there to provide for them.  The payout would replace your income, and help pay for monthly costs you now provide for them.

The design of a term life insurance policy is thought to end around the time the term expires.  Your kids will be grown, you’ll have your house paid for, you’ll have money in savings and/or a 401k plan or retirement plan.

Whole Life Insurance

Final Expense Whole life Insurance

Whole life insurance provides coverage your whole life, and it includes something called “cash value”.  Think of it like a mini savings account attached to the policy.  The cash value grows, and you won’t pay taxes on it.  You can borrow money against the cash value, or “surrender” (cancel your plan) for the cash.  Caution:  If you don’t repay your policy loan amount with interest that you borrowed from your cash value, you will reduce your death benefit (the amount your policy is worth).  If you surrender your policy (cancel it), you’ll no longer have coverage.

If you have relatively good health, you will want to answer the health questions on the application (be truthful) and the insurance company will check your medical records and prescription records.  No blood work or physical is needed.  This is called “Simplified Issue” and you’ll have “Day 1” coverage.  This means you are covered from the moment your first premium is paid, and you qualify for the lower priced monthly rates for final expense insurance.  If you can’t qualify for “Simplified Issue” there is “Guaranteed Issue” or “Graded”.  Graded usually has better rates than Guaranteed Issue.  Guaranteed Issue means you can have ANY medical problems, they don’t check your medical history or prescriptions, but you’ll have a 2 year (maybe more) waiting period for dying of natural causes for any death benefit to be paid.  If you pass away within this period, your family and loved ones will get back all of the money paid into the plan as premiums, plus interest!

Final Expense Insurance is considered to be a type of permanent life insurance.  It lasts as long as you live.  The death benefit is guaranteed, and the cash value account grows as you make your monthly payments.
