Final Expense Information
What is final expense insurance?
Losing a loved one can be an overwhelming experience with decisions to be made regarding funeral plans. Final expense insurance covers the funeral costs of the departed, which saves family members from the stress of a large expense. National averages for Burial Costs are about $10,000.
Final Expense Insurance vs. Traditional Life Insurance
Similar to final expense insurance, life insurance also pays the beneficiary upon the death of the insured. However, there are significant differences between these policies.
Life insurance often requires a medical exam and can be denied if an applicant has a preexisting chronic condition. A life policy is purchased for high dollar amounts, often beginning at $10,000, which makes the premiums higher.
There is no medical exam required for final expense insurance. Most applicants are qualified after answering a health questionnaire. The face value of a final expense policy is much smaller than traditional life insurance policies, which results in a lower premium.

- It is designed to pay out immediately.
