What Is Burial Life Insurance?

One of the most common questions we get is what is burial insurance? The internet is riddled with misinformation on this topic, so let’s set the record straight.

First and foremost, burial insurance is life insurance.

Truthfully, burial insurance is actually just a marketing term. In fact, you will often hear the terms “final expense” or “funeral insurance” used in interchangeably along with the term “burial insurance”. In the end, they all refer to the same thing.

They are always a whole life insurance policy. They are never term life insurance policies (term life plans are temporary life insurance policies that expire after a certain number of years).

Basically, burial life insurance policies were designed to provide funds for end of life expenses. They way they function is very unique. Since these policies are whole life, they are incredibly easy to understand. There’s three things you need to know about them. There is no fine print that you need to be leery of.

  • They never expire at any age
  • The monthly price cannot increase
  • The death benefit cannot decrease

Once you have your policy in place, you are protected immediately if you qualified for immediate coverage (which most people do). Whenever you pass away, your policy will provide cold hard cash to your family, so they can pay for your final expenses.

If there is any money left over, it will stay with your family. It will not go to the funeral home (unless you were to name them as the beneficiary).


How They Are Unique

Not all life insurance is the same. Final expenses insurance is a prime example of this. The insurance companies created these policies understanding who would buy them.

The most striking element of final expense life insurance is their incredibly relaxed underwriting.

The insurance companies fully understand that it’s only natural to develop health issues as you age. It’s for this reason that they designed these plans to accept many major medical issues. It cannot be over emphasized how relaxed the underwriting is.

Another very unique feature to burial policies is the very low face amount options. You can literally buy as little as $1,000 in coverage. If you go to buy a traditional life policy, you will typically see face amount minimums of $50,000.

You can buy as much as you like, but the very low minimums allow you to buy only as much as you need. This is particularly helpful for folks who are on a fixed income. Not to mention, if you desire to be cremated, you really don’t need much coverage, so burial insurance perfectly accommodates that need.
