Sooner or later, we all have to leave our loved ones behind. The key is to ensure their financial security after we pass. Final expense insurance provides both the insured and their loved ones with peace of mind and financial security if the named insured passes. No one wants to carry the burden of end-of-life expenses, and with this type of insurance, no one has to.

What Is Final Expense Insurance?

Final Expense insurance is a type of life insurance that provides funds for funeral expenses associated with the passing of the named insured. Average funeral costs range between $7,000 and $12,000 as of 2020. Many individuals do not allocate adequate funds for funeral expenses, and as a result, their families may struggle financially. Transporting remains to a funeral home, casket costs, embalming, burial, and other funeral-related costs add up quickly. This type of life insurance protects the finances of those who may need funeral services.
