Final Expense

 Final Expense Insurance is a type of whole life insurance designed to pay medical bills and funeral expenses when an insured passes. A final expense policy is also known as Burial or Funeral Insurance and is designed primarily with seniors in mind.

Each of us will face the death of a close family member one day and worrying about funeral costs will only add to the pain and grief. While there’s nothing we can do to ease the pain of loss, planning ahead can remove the financial burden of final expenses.

According to the National Funeral Directors Association, the national median cost of an adult funeral, with viewing and burial, in 2017 was $8,7551 And, this cost does not include the cemetery plot, monument, flowers, obituary or other cash expenses2, which could push the cost well over $10,000.

We offer one of the best carriers for Final Expense Coverage: Foresters Financial, an international financial services provider with a unique history.

Our Final Expense policy has these features:

  • Whole Life Insurance – policy never lapses if premiums are paid.
  • Cash value – insured may be able to take out a policy loan. Cash Value will also step in if you miss payments so the policy does not lapse.
  • The premiums are the same on Day 1 as on Day 1000, as long as they are paid.
  • Simplified issue – usually no medical exam (also called a life insurance exam) is required, just health questions on the application.
  • Easy application process and fast approvals – you will know within days if the policy is in effect.
  • Affordable – based on age so the sooner you apply the cheaper it will be.
  • Low coverage amounts -$5,00 to $35,000 are typical.
