How much life insurance do I need for my final expenses?

The amount of life insurance you may need to cover your final expenses depends on a few factors such as what final expenses you may have, where you live and your budget.

What are final expenses?

Final expenses is a broad term for all the costs you may leave behind after you pass away.

It may include costs such as your:

  • Funeral
  • Burial
  • Cremation
  • Unpaid medical debt
  • Co-signed credit card debt

These items can cost hundreds or thousands of dollars. The exact amount will vary depending on what debts you had before you passed away and what type of funeral your family holds in your honor.

The cost of a funeral, burial or cremation can vary widely depending on which services and facility your family selects. The median cost for an adult funeral in 2017, with viewing, burial and a vault, was $8,755.2

But if your family chooses a more simple option, such as a cremation and viewing, it drops down to $6,260.3

Life insurance can help pay for some or all of these costs.

How can I cover my final expenses?

If you enroll in a policy, your family will have the freedom to use the policy’s death benefit (your coverage amount) however they choose. This means they can use it for any of the final expenses mentioned above, in addition to other costs that come up.

You can choose a coverage amount ranging from $5,000 up to $25,000 depending on your needs and budget.

How much coverage do I need?

The coverage amount you may need is personal and will vary widely.

You can get an initial estimate by making a list of the final expenses you expect you will have. For example, you can ask yourself questions such as:

  • How much money will my family need to pay for my funeral?
  • Do I want a simple cremation or a fancy funeral?
  • Will I leave any co-signed debts behind?
  • Do I want to leave my family any extra money?

If you live in an affordable area and want a simple cremation, you may only need a life insurance policy with a small coverage amount.

However, if you have high amounts of debt and want your family to hold an elaborate funeral, you may want to consider getting more life insurance coverage.

These questions are just a starting point. A licensed insurance agent can suggest a more accurate coverage amount.

It only takes a few minutes to review your personal details and find coverage that works for your needs.
