Who pays for funeral insurance?
Seniors may purchase a plan for themselves, and they do it because they want to be sure their family does not have to worry about coming up with extra money for a funeral. In other cases, grown children will pay for coverage. Even though adult children can help their elderly parents shop for burial plans, the person that will get insured does need to get involved at the end of the process. This might involve signing a policy or answering a few questions in a telephone interview.
Does Everybody Qualify for Burial Insurance?
Many insurers offer plans for individuals from about age 50 to individuals over 80. With almost all of these burial insurance products, the application process is kept very short and simple. However, you might wonder if some medical condition will get an application declined. The answer is that there is a plan on the market for almost everybody. Consider the two basic kinds of burial insurance in AZ:
- Simplified: They ask a few questions about health, but these questions are mostly meant to weed out very unhealthy applicants.
- Guaranteed Acceptance: They ask no health questions at all, and everybody is accepted.
Answering some health questions will probably gain somewhat lower rates and an immediate death benefit. Companies that don’t ask any questions may charge more and include a waiting period that the insured person must survive before the full face value is payable. Before that two or three year waiting period expires, the policy might refund premiums or pay some percentage of the death benefit back to the beneficiaries.
