State-Regulated Final Expense Plan
Luckily, you have multiple options when it comes to planning for the end of your life, or the life of a loved one. First, you can opt to do nothing and leave your family with the financial burden of paying for your funeral. However, we know you don’t want to do that – why else would you be on this website? You can also elect for a pre-paid funeral. Unfortunately, many people don’t have the financial stability to outright pay for a funeral out of their savings. Finally, you can choose a state-regulated final expense, which helps provide the funds needed to provide a respectful and dignified funeral service. Plan benefits include:
Final Expenses are what an individual’s loved ones pay upon death to settle funeral costs and miscellaneous bills. The average cost of a Funeral has risen from $5,582 in 2004 to $7,181 in 2014. That is a 28.6% increase according to the NATIONAL FUNERAL DIRECTORS ASSOCIATION (NFDA). These numbers DO NOT include cemetery cost. According to (NFDA), the median cost of a funeral with cremation is $6,078, but some sources put the average cost of a cremation lower at $2,000-$4,000. Once you include cemetery costs, such as the plot, the opening & closing of the vault, the headstone, and any extras like flowers, obituary notices, and transportation the price can quickly boost between $10,000-$14,000 for the total cost.
