What is Final Expense Insurance?
Final Expense insurance is a whole life insurance policy intended to pay for the policy holder’s final expenses upon death. Sometimes final expense insurance is called funeral insurance, burial insurance, final expense life insurance, permanent life insurance and whole life insurance. A whole life insurance policy is just what it sounds like- coverage for your WHOLE life, as long as premiums are paid. This is different from term life insurance which has a predetermined expiration date.
Benefits of Final Expense Insurance:
- Pays final expenses in your family’s time of need
- Peace of mind for you and your family
- Monthly payments WILL NEVER increase
- Life Insurance no medical exam
- Policy can’t be cancelled due to age or health
Types of Senior Final Expense Insurance Plans
There are different levels of coverage available for senior final expense insurance plans. The level of coverage is primarily based on age and health. Assurance Life will provide a short yes or no health questionnaire and based on the responses, the level of coverage is determined.
The highest level of coverage is for those in relatively decent health. Preferred/Level coverage starts immediately with no waiting period and the rates will be the LOWEST for this level. Preferred/Level coverage is the best final expense insurance you can qualify for. (90 percent of all of our clients qualify for preferred coverage.)
Next would be a plan that phases in the death benefit over a two year period. Graded benefit whole life insurance – for instance, if death occurred in year one, some insurance companies would pay out a certain percentage such as 30% of the death benefit. Then in year two, a higher percentage such as 70% is paid. Finally, after two years, the full death benefit is paid. This is great option for those with some recent health issues.
For clients with more significant health issues we offer guaranteed issue life insurance plans. This is a type of plan where the client is guaranteed approval regardless of any current or prior health conditions. Also known as final expense insurance with no health questions.
Amounts of Coverage Available
Once the level of coverage is determined, it is important to choose the amount of coverage you need. There is a wide range of death benefits available ranging from $5000-100,000 to be paid out to your beneficiary upon death. You will want to consider funeral cost in your area, any debts to be paid out of the policy, and finally, if you would like additional money to remain for family members or friends.
The most common final expense life insurance policy amount is $10,000 because the average funeral cost is around $9,000. However, Assurance Life can help you determine the amount of coverage that is best for your individual situation. A few questions to ask yourself when determining how much Insurance do you need:
- Family Income – How much is available?
- How will your family pay for your final expenses?
- Anyone else depend on you financially?
- Would you like to leave some money behind for children?
- Any other family members who you would like to leave money for?
- Estate taxes?
