Firstly though, let’s do a little investigating.

What makes it the Best Burial Insurance?

There are 3 factors to look for in a burial insurance plan.

  1. Coverage starts immediately – no waiting period if possible.
  2. Policy is competitively priced.
  3. Insurance company has a good financial record.

Now, let’s take a look at these 3 factors in detail.

When does my insurance coverage start

Some burial policies have a two year waiting period where they will not pay the full death benefit. This type of plan is designed for individuals with severe health conditions, but healthy people still sign up for them.

In the end, we can advise you on the best possible option based on your health and budget. Only using a two-year wait policy as a last choice option.

The Cost of the Burial Policy

Most final expense life insurance companies have a similar cost structure. However, some insurance carriers offer additional benefits that are included with your policy.

Examples include an accidental death rider or possibly a nursing home rider. These are items to consider when comparing pricing for the same amount of immediate coverage.

Insurance Company Financial Record

Thankfully today, most life insurance companies are A rated with A.M. Best.

AM Best provides news, credit ratings and financial data products and services for the insurance industry.

If an insurance company has financial issues, they may not be able to pay a claim. Consequently, this would cause the very financial hardship you were trying to avoid.

Fortunately, with big data and sources like actuarial tables, it’s very unlikely for an insurance company to have financial issues.

How do I find the Best Burial Insurance

Locate a qualified independent insurance broker or agency. Independent agencies usually have several companies that they work with.

They can compare offers from multiple companies. If the broker is trustworthy, they will select a company that will meet ALL of your needs.

Remember, your health is a MAJOR factor. A professional broker should evaluate your medical history, analyze your goals and assess your budget.

The best option will offer a competitive price and coverage that starts ASAP.

Cannot be purchased directly

You cannot purchase a policy directly from a Final Expense Insurance Company. They must purchased through a broker or agent.

Life insurance is complicated with a multitude of variables to consider. This is why life insurance requires the help of agents or brokers. They have to be screened and licensed with the state. Additionally, you would want an agent knowledgeable on the products they offer through the insurance carrier(s).


Exception: Guaranteed issue life insurance. Insurance companies offer these policies directly, usually through the mail or advertised on television. However, all guaranteed issue policies have a two year waiting period.
