Unfortunately, dying can be expensive. There may be medical bills, funeral expenses, cremation, and other bills you leave behind that may accumulate in the event of your passing. Funeral costs alone often reach up to $10,000 or more. The cemetery plot, headstone, and any other bills are extra. Your family may have the added stress of paying these bills out of their own pocket if you don’t have a final expense insurance policy.
Is Final Expense Insurance the same as Life Insurance?
Final expense is a type of life insurance. Traditional life insurance is meant to provide security for loved ones you leave behind so that they may continue living the lifestyle you have achieved. Final Expense Insurance is specifically designed to ensure your family doesn’t have the added burden of the bills associated with your death in an already challenging time for them.
How much does Final Expense Insurance cover?
Final Expense Insurance policies typically range in the $5,000 to $25,000 coverage.

Final Expense Insurance gets more expensive as I get older; why is it still a good idea?
Consider this: at age 65 in good health, a $10,000 final expense insurance policy can be as little as $45 per month. If you were to die at age 75 – you would have had to save $85 per month to accumulate $10,000 to leave behind for your family to cover your final expenses. You would have to save nearly double the $45 premium for the same policy value.
