Burial Insurance - 6 Reasons Why You Need One

June 13, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 162

A lot of people like to avail of educational insurance packages and medical insurance packages for themselves and for members of their family. However, a lot of people are still somewhat allergic to the idea of burial insurance. Perhaps they do not like the idea of preparing for an event that nobody wants to happen. However, there are a lot of advantages to availing a burial insurance. Here are just some of them:

Have Future Security

Burial costs can be very expensive. The price of casket, cemetery land, embalming, funeral arrangements, and other related costs are no joke. It can leave the bereaved with a lot of financial responsibility to shoulder. You can avoid having to shoulder such sudden financial responsibilities by securing a burial insurance for members of your family. By having one yourself, you can avoid leaving financial responsibility to your loved ones.

Avoid Lump Sum Cost

Burial insurance is paid on installment basis. This makes the burial cost easier to shoulder. It is a lot better than having to pay all the burial expenses when someone dies. You can also avail of different installment plans. Some insurance providers allow you to choose from numerous installment options (e.g. 5 years to pay, 7 years to pay, 10 years to pay, etc.). This means that you can choose a payment plan that suits your financial capability.

Enjoy Additional Benefits

To attract customers, insurance providers usually bundle additional benefits to their packages. For example, an insurance provider may provide educational assistance to the underage children that the deceased will leave behind. The insurance company may also provide financial assistance to the family of those that will die prematurely (earlier than expected). By availing a burial insurance now, you are actually securing more future benefits than one.

Make Early Arrangements

Other than the expenses, doing burial arrangements can also be tiresome. This is especially depressing considering that the family of the deceased is already in bereavement. You can avoid such tasks by availing a burial insurance package now. This is because burial insurance packages normally include funeral arrangements as well. For example, you will no longer have to find a funeral car to rent or a casket to buy because the insurance provider will take care of these things for you. All you have to do is bereave the passing of your loved one.

Absorb Future Price Fluctuations

By availing of a burial insurance now, you are paying based on the current market price of funeral expenses (current market price of casket, funeral car rental, and such). In the event that funeral costs and burial costs increase in the future, your insurance provider will not ask additional payments from you. This way, you are protecting yourself from future price increases.

Buy Something You Will Surely Avail

Some insurance packages end up not getting consumed by the holder. In a medical insurance for example, the insurance holder will not avail of its benefits unless he/she comes to require medical assistance. However, it is a certainty that everyone will need burial assistance in the future although nobody wishes for it to happen soon. This means that you are not paying for nothing.
