How Does Burial Life Insurance Work?

A burial life insurance policy is a type of whole life insurance that offers small face value options and very lenient underwriting.

There are no medical exams, and most health issues will not prevent acceptance.

Tip:
A burial policy may also be referred to as funeral or final expense insurance.

The proceeds from the policy are typically meant to pay for end-of-life expenses.

However, your loved ones may spend the money on anything, including medical bills, debts, or anything else.

Also, your beneficiaries may keep any leftover money.

Generally, you only have to fill out a basic health questionnaire. Plans with health questions offer no waiting period if you’re accepted.

On the flip side, there are policies without health questions. Those are called guaranteed acceptance because you can’t be denied due to pre-existing conditions.

Plans with guaranteed approval always have a two-year waiting period.

Death during the waiting period will simply result in your beneficiaries receiving the premiums you paid plus interest (10% is standard).

Senior final expense policies have a fixed cost, so the price will never rise. In addition, the coverage lasts a lifetime, and they build cash value.

 

How Much Does Final Expense Insurance In Arkansas Cost?

$50-$100 per month is the typical cost of a final expense policy with a $10,000 face amount.

But remember that prices are determined based on your exact age, state of residence, gender, health, lifestyle (tobacco usage), and the amount of coverage you want.

Below are some sample quotes for a final expense policy. All prices shown are monthly.

How Much Does A Funeral Cost In Arkansas?

The NFDA reports that a traditional burial with a vault and viewing will cost nearly $10,000.

They also reported that a cremation service with a viewing costs nearly $7,000.

However, you can save a considerable amount by opting out of funeral services.

The costs are substantially lower if you go with a direct cremation or burial, which have no memorial services.

Below is an overview of how much funerals cost in Arkansas:

  • Traditional burial service with a viewing: $7,334
  • Direct burial: $3,264
  • Cremation service with a viewing: $6,405
  • Direct cremation: $1,671

 

Know Your Rights

The Arkansas Department Of Insurance stipulates that all life insurance contracts include a ten-day free look provision.

The free look provision entitles the policyholder the right to refuse any policy they bought and get a refund of any premiums.

That means if you buy the wrong final expense insurance policy or change your mind, you have the guaranteed right to cancel it and get a refund.
