How much does final expense insurance cost?
The cost of final expense insurance is often less than the cost of traditional life insurance, but your premium will depend on the amount of coverage you’re looking for as well as the answers to your questionnaire and/or application.

Factors that Differ the Cost of Your Final Expense Insurance Policy
The process to obtaining final expense insurance is different than that of traditional term life insurance. Learn more about the factors that can differ the cost of your final expense insurance policy below. Keep in mind that not all final expense insurances require the following.
Although final expense insurance doesn’t require a medical exam, some types will require other forms of health information, with a pharmacy report being one. This typically includes a list of all the medications you’ve been prescribed over a certain number of years.
Motor Vehicle Report
Again, this is not required for every final expense insurance application, but some insurance providers will help determine your lifestyle and behavior based on a variety of reports, sometimes including a motor vehicle report.
Medical Insurance Bureau Report
This kind of report is typically only required if you’ve applied for and been denied life insurance before. That factor shouldn’t necessarily disqualify you from receiving final expense insurance, it will just further help the company provide an adequate coverage and premium.
Credit & Financial History
Much like the motor vehicle report, a credit check can help insurance companies determine a certain level of reliability and risk.
Additionally, the type of policy you choose and the amount of coverage you’re looking for can also play a role in your premium and coverage, but SelectQuote can provide you with coverage options and quotes in just minutes. Let us help you see if final expense insurance is right for you.
Benefits of Final Expense Insurance
Final expense insurance can be beneficial for both seniors and individuals with health concerns, as there’s no medical exam required, but it can also be a budget-friendly option to cover end-of-life costs. The average funeral costs around $10,000, making final expense insurance an easy way to ensure your loved ones aren’t burdened if the unexpected happens. Plus, final expense insurance can cover other costs such as credit card debt, medical bills and more.
How Much Final Expense Insurance You Need
