Final expense insurance provides a payout for the named beneficiary, usually a family member or loved one, at the time of your death. The amount of the payout will vary depending on the plan you choose, but it is typically enough to pay for your end-of-life expenses such as burial or cremation, or even remaining medical bills or other expenses. Final expense insurance is a way for you to ensure that your family does not have out-of-pocket expenses while they are coping with your death.
While none of us like to think about our mortality or the fact that life will go on without us once we are gone, it’s incredibly important to plan for this time. Without final expense insurance, your family may have to pay for your burial, cremation, and other end-of-life expenses after your death out-of-pocket.
The most common way for the beneficiary to use final expense insurance is to pay for end-of-life expenses such as your burial or cremation costs, headstone, casket, embalming, funeral or memorial services, and flowers. However, the beneficiary does not have to spend the final expense payout on these items. They can use it to pay for outstanding medical bills, legal fees, or even credit card bills. It’s essential that you choose someone you trust as your beneficiary, as this payout is intended to be used to relieve pressure
from your family and pay for your end-of-life expenses but can be used for anything that the beneficiary chooses.
What Is the Difference Between Life Insurance and Final Expense Insurance?
Final expense insurance is a type of whole life insurance. However, final expense insurance is intended to cover only the costs of your end-of-life expenses, whereas many life insurance plans are designed to replace the income and other value that you contribute to your household. Final expense insurance is typically a less expensive life insurance policy option because it does not result in as large a payout. It is an ideal option for those who cannot pay the premiums and fees associated with larger life insurance policies but still want to offer their family protection from financial stress because of the costs associated with their final expenses.
Life, after you’re gone, is not something that you may want to think about. But there will come a time when your family has to cope with their loss. Planning for your demise by purchasing final expense insurance is one way that you can make this time easier for your family. It’s a way that even after you're gone, you can still protect them.
