Why is Final Expense Insurance so important?
Illinois Final Expense Insurance is also known as Burial Insurance, Senior Life Insurance or Funeral Life Insurance. Final Expense Insurance is designed to cover bills that your loved ones will face after your death. These costs will include medical bills, funeral expenses, Legal/Probate, the list goes on. A funeral and associated costs could run well over $10,000.. The question is:
Where will the money come from?
Social Security: pays only a $255 lump-sum death benefit and only to qualified dependents. See Social Security Special Lump Sum Payment page for details. Also, Social Security income may be reduced by as much as 50% with the death of a spouse.
Illinois Department of Human Services: May pay up to $1,103 for a funeral and $552 for a cremation/funeral. See the Illinois Department of Human Services Funeral and Burial Benefit Page for more details.
Veteran's Administration: may pay a $300 burial allowance under certain circumstances. See U.S. Department of Veteran Affairs for more details.
Savings: Do you have the funds necessary to cover such costly expenses?
Loved Ones: Do your children have the funds necessary to cover such costly expenses? Do you want to leave this burden to them?
