How funeral insurance plans work

Burial insurance is generally a small whole life policy meant to cover funeral all end-of-life expenses. You may have heard of this type of policy before, referred to as final expense insurance or funeral expense insurance.

Whole life insurance policies are easy to understand because they have fixed prices, lifetime coverage, and a face value that can’t decrease.

Additionally, whole life policies offer a tax-free cash payout to beneficiaries with no restrictions on how they spend the money.

Funeral costs range from $1,500 to $15,000 depending on the type of service and extent of amenities. The average funeral cost is about $10,000 for burial and $5,000 for a complete cremation service.

This kind of coverage is sold in small amounts, typically between $5,000 and $20,000, to help policyholders cover these end-of-life expenses.


Tips to get the best final expense insurance rates for 50 year old’s (or any age)

With no medical exam required, burial life insurance policies are becoming more popular – especially for those in their 50’s when rates are inexpensive.

These three tips can help get you the best rate on your policy.


Tip #1: Work with an independent agency

It’s highly advisable to work with an independent agency representing many different burial insurance companies.

Captive companies, such as State Farm, have agents who can only sell insurance from their company. Captive agents cannot offer you coverage from any other insurance company. Independent agencies are free to shop for dozens of insurance companies. They can compare thousands of policies from dozens of companies to find the one that will offer you the best price.


Tip #2: Work with a final expense specialist

Specialists play a significant role in all industries for a reason – they focus primarily on one area. Only a specialist will have the suitable carriers and expertise to help you find the best plan for your unique situation.

Don’t waste your time speaking to several life insurance companies. Speak with a specialist to find the best plan and price for you.


Tip #3: Don’t delay purchasing a policy

Buying funeral insurance is a task you don’t want to put off. Life insurance rates increase as you age. For example, life insurance in your 80’s will cost you significantly more than it does in your 50’s.

Health also plays a significant factor in the price you pay. The unhealthier a person is, the higher premiums they will pay.

In addition, certain health conditions can trigger a waiting period before your coverage is active. At 50, you have a great chance of qualifying for a plan with no waiting period.

You can almost certainly get fully protected from day one.
