Final Expense Insurance
Often considered “funeral insurance” or “burial insurance”, final expense insurance is intended to be used to help cover expenses, such as the funeral cost or memorial service after the insured individual dies. Final expense insurance is similar to whole life insurance but typically pays a smaller death benefit and can be easier to be approved for. Unlike whole life insurance, final expense insurance is sold in small policies to make it more affordable with typical death benefits ranging from $2,000 to $50,000. Because the payouts are typically smaller than normal whole life insurance policies, the monthly premiums are also more affordable.
Many final expense policies are recommended for older individuals who are starting to think about their funeral costs or the expenses that their family members would be left within the event of their death. It’s important to discuss insurance options with a trusted insurance broker before purchasing any policy, as some life insurance policies can go towards paying final expenses and a separate policy may not be necessary. Individuals who are interested in a smaller, easier type of life insurance to protect their family in the event of an unexpected death, may be interested in a final expense insurance policy.
Talk with the professionals at USAmeriCare to understand your policy options, and purchase a final expense insurance plan that works best for you.
Many people wonder if life insurance is a necessary purchase. There’s no way of knowing exactly when an individual will die, nor how life will change afterward. Without knowing our life expectancy, life insurance can feel like a drawn-out expense, without much benefit. But the truth is that life insurance, and especially final expense life insurance, is an important way to protect family members from financial stress after the insured individual’s death.
When an individual dies, the family not only faces the stress of grieving, but also the stress of paying for the medical bills, burial expenses, and any co-signed debts that are still owed. A final expense insurance policy provides that money that the family needs to pay for these expenses and be able to focus on celebrating the life of the policyholder without any added stressors. While the policyholder is paying the policy, it may feel like just another monthly expense. However, when the family receives the death benefit cash amount, they’ll be grateful for the additional help when they need it most.

Final expense insurance is designed to cover funeral expenses, medical bills, and burial costs after the death of the insured individual. With the median cost of a funeral being about $9,000, final expense insurance can be a necessary payment in order for the family to be able to afford the funeral and burial costs without facing a huge financial burden.
The insured individual has the opportunity to specify how they would like the funds to be used after their death. Some individuals choose to name the funeral home as their beneficiary, to ensure the funds are used appropriately for funeral and burial expenses. Others choose specific family members as their beneficiaries and state clearly how they want the funds to be used.
