Final Expense Insurance
Final expense insurance is a type of whole life insurance with a small death benefit designed to cover the insured person’s funeral and burial expenses. These policies are relatively easy to get approved for compared to other whole life or term life insurance policies. The only difference between final expense insurance and many other types of life insurance is that the policies are smaller, which keeps premiums more affordable for policy owners.
How Does Final Expense Life Insurance Work?
Final expense life insurance may be a good fit for people who no longer have other life insurance policies and want to relieve their loved ones of the financial burden of funeral and burial costs.
Many final expense life insurance policies have few requirements for approval. The insured person must fill out an application, and the premiums must be paid on time. When the insured person dies, the death benefit goes to the beneficiaries designated on the policy.
Even though it’s called final expense life insurance, beneficiaries can use the death benefit as they wish and aren’t restricted to using it for funeral and burial expenses or final medical bills.
