Have you ever heard the phrase “dying is expensive?” You may never give it a second thought until you lose someone and suddenly you’re expected to scrounge up thousands of dollars to lay him or her to rest. The average funeral—including cemetery plot, casket, service and headstone—costs between $10,000 and $20,000, which is a big financial burden to face while struggling through grief.
Rather than leave that burden to your loved ones, you can purchase life insurance to cover the costs in advance of your death. For those with limited budgets, there are available life insurance policies that provide just enough coverage to fund a funeral and relieve the surviving family of the responsibility. Or you can select a policy with more comprehensive coverage to provide the funds your family needs to continue living their accustomed lifestyle as they plan for life’s next stage without you.
On top of life insurance, some people choose to buy cemetery plots while alive so their families won’t have to worry about that step when the time comes. Because so many big decisions occur after a loved one’s death—final resting place, type of service, headstone selection and more—everything you do during your life helps your family move forward following your death. That peace of the mind that comes from financial security is a great legacy to leave behind. Talk to your independent insurance agent today.
