No one likes to think about planning his or her own funeral, but the truth is that it’s a very helpful piece of your family’s financial future. Funeral and burial service costs are exceedingly high, averaging between $10,000 and $15,000 after factoring in the casket, cemetery plot and headstone. This is a very large burden to leave behind for your grieving loved ones.
However, you can take care of this strain in advance by purchasing life insurance. There are now many types of life insurance policies available, including policies specific to final expenses, small life policies that cover these costs and larger life policies that provide a bigger financial benefit to allow your family to continue living their accustomed lifestyle without the need to worry about finances as they mourn your loss.
Some people go an extra step and buy cemetery plots in advance to further relieve the burden. Think about it—quite a few big decisions must be made following a death in regards to the funeral service and final resting place of the deceased. A time of grieving is difficult enough without worrying about pinching pennies to make such final plans. Anything you can do while still alive to alleviate this stress is a legacy to your loved ones.
Your local agent can inform you about life insurance plans that cover final expenses and then deliver free quotes for such policies from a variety of trusted insurers. This allows you to select the right policy for the right price to ensure your family’s financial future following your death and for years following.
