Frequently Asked Questions

What is Final Expense insurance?

Final Expense insurance is a certain type of permanent life insurance which can cover cremation or burial costs, last-minute hospital co-pays, and other bills.

What are the different types of Final Expense insurance?

The most desirable Final Expense policies are permanent Whole Life policies which have fixed premiums and are designed to last till death.

What are the benefits of owning Final Expense insurance?

People buy Final Expense to save their families from the shock and financial burden of a death.

There are many benefits to owning a policy:

  • Premiums are designed for seniors up to age 85, and on fixed incomes
  • Your premiums never increase
  • Your coverage will never decrease
  • Your coverage is permanent (not Term)
  • Your plan builds cash-value
  • Riders can be included to help pay for certain disabilities while you’re alive
  • There is no medical exam
  • You cannot be cancelled due to age or sickness
  • Your family receives a tax-free benefit, usually 48 hours after your death
  • You can get a personal agent to assist with family decisions after you’re gone

Are there any drawbacks to owning a Final Expense policy?

Mainly, you can be cancelled if premiums are not paid. Also, if you don’t research carriers you may end up spending too much for the same amount of coverage.

How much does a policy cost?

Policies can be as low as $15/mo. The premium is based on age, health and coverage amount. There are many carriers, and some are more expensive for the same amount of coverage. It pays to use an experienced broker.

Could I do this myself?

Yes. However, if you’re not aware of all of the carriers out there, and how their policies work, you can spend lots of time and lots of extra money. Best to use an experienced broker.

How do you get paid?

We are brokers who spend time asking the right questions and finding our clients the lowest national premiums from several carriers. The carriers pay us a fee, but the service is of no cost to clients.

How do I know which company to buy my policy from?

You’ll want to work with only highly-rated carriers.

Carriers must have an established rating, with an A-rating being best in terms of assets and claims-paying ability.

A lower-rated carrier may have a more attractive cost, but may not be there or make excuses when it comes time to pay a death benefit.

How much coverage should I get?

We recommend getting enough coverage to pay for your local cremation or burial costs, and factor in an amount of money you’d like to leave a family member.

I’ve had some health issues. Will I qualify for coverage?

Yes. Different carriers will allow for certain illnesses when others will not. We specialize in getting you coverage from carriers who will accept your condition while still offering you affordable coverage.

I have a low, fixed budget.

No problem. We understand. Most Final Expense policies are designed for seniors on fixed incomes. No matter the budget, we can find coverage for you.

What happens if I die without coverage?

Think about this carefully. Most families will go through two phases upon your death: The Shock/Denial Phase is when they first get the news and it hits hard, making it difficult to make decisions if they were not pre-planned. The Spending Phase is when they may get unpaid medical bills, other bills and of course the unexpected cost of immediate transportation, mortuary, body processing and cremation or funeral/burial costs as they’re trying to process what just happened and what to do next. This is when they overspend due to anxiety, inexperience and guilt.

Remember, the principal reason people own an affordable Final Expense plan, is to avoid being an unnecessary burden to their families. This is where we can help!
