What is Final Expense Insurance?
Final Expense Insurance is an insurance policy that can be used to pay for funeral services, burial and other costs following the policy holder’s passing. This policy will help ease the financial burden on loved ones when the policy holder passes.
Why do I need Final Expense Insurance?
Losing a loved one is an emotional and difficult experience. Although many people are uncomfortable talking about end of life issues, it is imperative to plan for them. The expenses associated with death and funerals can have a significant financial impact. In the Lafayette, LA area, these expenses on average can exceed $8,500. Final expense insurance helps protect your loved ones from paying these costs out of pocket.
Many Americans believe that Social Security will pay for their final expense needs, however, the government only pays a lump sum of $255 for those who qualify. The Veterans Administration final expense benefit, if you qualify, is only $734.
