Burial Policy Plan Details

First of all, “burial insurance” is just a marketing term used to describe a specific type of whole life insurance seniors buy to ensure their funeral expenses are taken care of.

“Final expense insurance” and “funeral insurance” are also used in place of burial insurance. Know that all three of these names are referring to the same thing.

These plans are whole life insurance which means the they work is ultra simple.

  • Coverage is guaranteed to remain the same and not decrease
  • Policy is guaranteed to never expire as you get older
  • Premiums guaranteed to never rise with age

They are really easy to qualify for, and you’ll never have to take a medical exam. Most companies just require you to answer a basic health questionnaire.

At the same time, some final expenses life companies don’t have any health questions.

Granted, no health question plans do cost more and make you wait two years before you’re insured. For certain super high risk health issues, no health question plans are a great option.

Since these plans are life insurance, the payout will be a tax free cashiers check made payable to your beneficiaries.

The money can be used however the beneficiary pleases, and any money leftover will be theirs to keep.


How To Get Coverage With No Waiting Period

As you may or may not know, some plans make you wait two years before you’re actually insured.

If a plan has a waiting period, the insurance company will not pay out a death benefit if the insured were to pass during the first two years.

Instead, the insurance carrier would simply refund all premium payments plus interest. Most of the time, the interest is 10% (on the premiums not the death benefit).

At the same time, there plans that offer immediate protection that has no waiting period.

With immediate coverage policies, the full death benefit is payable from the very first day (except for suicide).

To get a policy without a waiting period you must apply for a plan where you answer health questions and are approved.

Know this.

If you buy a final expense policy from any company where you don’t answer health questions, there will always be a 2-3 year waiting period.

No health questions = No immediate coverage

There are no exceptions to that rule.
