Burial insurance

Burial insurance, also known as funeral insurance, final expense insurance, or insurance for funeral costs, is a useful tool for loved ones who need to cover the costs of a deceased loved one’s funeral, memorial ceremony, gravestone, urn, and other last charges. Although the benefit amount is substantially lower than that of typical life insurance, it is fundamentally a life insurance policy. It is typically bought to cover funeral expenses, but it can also be used to settle the deceased’s debts, such as credit card debt, medical bills, home loans, and personal loans. It’s simple and quick to receive a free quotation for a final expense life insurance policy if you believe you and your family could benefit from burial insurance.

What expenses are covered by final insurance?

To assist seniors in paying for costs associated with passing on, such as funeral bills, final expense insurance was developed. According to the National Funeral Directors Association, the average funeral can easily cost $10,000 or more when you factor in embalming, the service, and the burial.  

Advantages and Disadvantages of Funeral Insurance

This type of investment has advantages and disadvantages, just like everything else you purchase.


  • Compared to most life insurance plans, it’s easier to qualify for.
  • Almost no health-related questions to answer
  • No need for a medical exam
  • Alternatives for scheduling and paying for services in advance
  • Typically builds up the monetary value that is accessible while the policy is in effect.


  • Compared to most life insurance plans, the benefit is less
  • You won’t be given a discount for being in good health if there are no health-related questions.
  • Rates have gone up a little.
  • The number of premiums paid may exceed the cost of a funeral.
  • Often, after paying for funeral expenditures, there are little to no leftover funds.
  • Doing some research is the best way to determine which of these programs is best for you. After you’ve put down your requirements and your spending limit, contact a few businesses for quotations and consider your selections.

Two Different Kinds of Funeral Plans
Standard and pre-need funeral insurance are the two most common types. Both will assist you with making financial preparations and planning for all of your final arrangements.

Standard Funeral Insurance
They are offered as a whole life policy by life insurance companies. They are paid to beneficiaries in the event of a loved one’s passing to cover final expenses, which may include:

  • Services at funeral homes
  • Transportation
  • Cost of a burial plot
  • Grave opening and closing
  • Casket costs
  • grave vault, flowers, obituary notices, and a headstone
  • Cremation
  • Urn prices

Also, your loved one is free to choose any service providers they like. The beneficiary may decide to use all or a portion of the money to pay off the deceased’s other debts or expenses, such as:

  • Legal assistance
  • medical expenses
  • Charge-card debt
  • Car, personal, mortgage, and other loans 

Pre-need Funeral Insurance
Life insurance companies and, in some situations, funeral houses provide pre-need agreements. Yet, instead of going to a specific loved one, these funds are handed straight to the funeral home you’ve selected to partner with. Almost immediately upon one’s passing, they are paid out.

Pre-need insurance enables customers to pay for treatments that may be less expensive now than they will be in the future, which can help them save money. But, your loved ones won’t receive the difference if you pay more for your plan than you do for your funeral (the same is true for burial insurance). This implies that the funeral home won’t offer your loved ones the extra $1,000 if you purchase a $10,000 plan but your final arrangements are only worth $9,000 instead. Find out more about what to do once a loved one passes away.

How to Pick Your Ideal Burial Insurance Plan
Selecting the best plan is a very individual choice, and there are numerous crucial elements to take into account, such as:

How much protection do you require

  • Whether the insurance company offers family support services
  • Whether you choose to undergo a medical examination
  • How much a funeral typically costs where you live

Purchasing funeral insurance is similar to purchasing a vehicle. The fundamental components of every policy will be the same, but the specifics will distinguish one policy from another. Be sure the insurance you select supports the particular objective for which you are insuring yourself. 

Four Different Funeral Insurance Premium Types

Your monthly insurance payment is known as a premium. You’ll often pay on a monthly basis. Several payment methods are available for funeral insurance premiums.

Annually increasing premiums
They are determined based on your sex, age, and death benefit amount each time you renew your insurance. At the beginning, your premium will be smaller, but as you get older, it will increase annually.

Fixed Premiums
Your sex, age, and the extent of your coverage are also taken into account when determining these rates. As long as you pay your bills on time, your rates are often fixed for life. Changes in age or health cannot result in an increase in them.

Maximum Premiums
Some programs have a predetermined financial or age cap. When you achieve it, your coverage will remain in effect, but you won’t be required to continue paying premiums. After you reach your premium cap, which can be $10,000, you won’t be required to pay any additional premiums. If the age limit on your insurance is 95, once you reach that milestone you will no longer be required to pay premiums.

Payment Guarantee Fees
Regardless of which sum is higher—the exact amount of premiums you’ve paid or the initial covered amount—your beneficiary will be compensated.

Inform Your Loved Ones of Your Last Wishes
If you don’t let your loved ones know exactly what your wishes are, all planning you undertake in advance for your own final preparations will be for nought. Make sure to write down your last wishes and inform your loved ones so they can carry them out when the time comes.
