Nebraska Funeral Insurance Costs
Typically, Nebraska burial insurance companies base their rates upon age and health. While you can find plans that cover people from early middle age up to seniors over 80, rates will usually be the most affordable for younger people and people in relatively good health. Here are some sample rates for a female in Nebraska who is 51 and smokes:
- $5,000: $17.18
- $10,000: $32.16
- $15,000: $47.15
Note: These are only sample prices, and they could vary because of location, the insurer, or underwriting. Also, you are free to shop for a policy for your elderly parents, but these are some things to keep in mind. Anybody can pay for the policy, but the person who will actually covered does need to get included in the application process. Also, it is most convenient and suggested to pay with an automatic debit from a checking or savings account to insure the policy does not lapse for non payment.
Are There Different Types of Final Expense Insurance in Nebraska?
Most large insurance companies offer two types of plans. Guaranteed issue life insurance policies do not ask any health questions, and they accept every qualified applicant. Simplified issue policies do ask a few questions, but they do not require a physical exam. If possible, it is better to answer a few questions because these are the key to finding cheaper premiums and better benefits. For example, guaranteed issue policies do not offer an immediate death benefit, but the insured person will have to survive a waiting period before the full face value will be paid. Before that, the insurers might refund the premiums or pay some portion of the full face value. However, guaranteed issue life insurance can help people with serious medical problems get covered.
