Focus on What Matters

Growing up the daughter of a preacher, there was one fact I learned quickly: people die. It never failed that whenever my parents loaded us three kids up in the station wagon to head off for a glorious, family fun-filled day at the beach, as we dreamed of hilariously burying my dad in the sand, eating my mom’s carefully packed lunches that included all the Chips Ahoy and Doritos we could stomach, and “riding the waves” of the Gulf on our blow-up floats, my dad would get a dreaded phone call on the old land-line home phone right before he walked out the door, only to face the stark realization that someone from the community had passed away, and he was needed immediately. We knew the drill, because it happened on numerous occasions; so we would all sadly start the unloading process, and wish on our lucky stars that people would stop dying.

There is one percentage we can always count on, and that is that we all live in a finite world. 100% of us will pass away, just as all the generations before us. The real question is, What kind of legacy do we want to leave behind for our families? Do we love them enough to not want to be a financial burden on them when we pass away?

Why Final Expense?

Final expense life insurance is a life insurance policy that has a small death benefit and is easier to get qualified for. It gives you the opportunity to leave a last gift of love to your family.

If you don’t have money and you die without life insurance, the future reality is very different for your family. Funerals aren’t cheap, with even the most basic running $5000 or more; the average funeral costs over $8000 and the average cremation is a little over $6000.

While most Americans can’t even afford even a small emergency, where would your family get upwards of $10,000 if you were to die unexpectedly without life insurance?

Final expense insurance has a death benefit designed to cover expenses such as a funeral or memorial service, embalming and a casket, or cremation. However, the beneficiaries can use the death benefit for anything they choose.

Take Care of the Loose Ends

Nobody wants to spend time thinking about life on this earth coming to an end, but if we take care of the loose ends now, while we still can, it will leave a gift of love for our families so they are not financially burdened by our passing; and it will allow them to focus on the things that really matter, such as taking those family beach trips, and making memories that will be passed down for generations to come.
