AAnyone who’s ever had to help arrange the funeral of a loved one who didn’t have life insurance knows how stressful it can be. Not only does it affect us emotionally, but it can also put significant financial stress on us. State Farm agent Melanie Bakala knows the last thing anyone wants to do is put our loved ones in the same boat when it comes to their own funerals.
“The average funeral is usually around $8,000,” Bakala said. If the cost of your funeral would create a financial burden if your family members had to pay for it, final expense insurance (sometimes called funeral or funeral insurance) can ease the financial burden and stress on grieving loved ones by covering these costs.
