Funeral Costs & Shopping Tips
According to 2010 data, The National Funeral Directors Association says that the average cost of a funeral is $7,755. That price doesn't include things like the cost of the cemetery plot, flowers, headstone, and other costs.

For a more detailed look at pricing and shopping for funeral needs -
download the guide, "Shopping for Funeral Services" from the Federal Trade Commission.  The guidebook explains The FTC Funeral Rule, types of funerals, how to choose a provider, outlines funeral costs, and contains other key terms and information.

Eligibility criteria varies from carrier to carrier but, generally, if you're between the ages of 45-85 then you may be eligible to enroll into a Final Expense Insurance Policy. Each carrier issues their coverage based on your health profile which is assessed via a series of questions. For verification, the insurance carrier will usually perform a prescription background check and make a query to the Medical Information Bureau to gather more information to help determine your eligibility for the insurance policy.

The basic Final Expense Insurance Plan is usually referred to as a Level Benefit Plan. If your health profile doesn't meet the requirements for a Level Benefit Plan then you may be offered a Graded Benefit or Modified Benefit Plan. The Graded and Modified Benefit Plans pay a reduced coverage amount during the first couple of policy years. The cost for Graded and Modified Plans are also greater than for Level Plans.

Note that rates are set based on the applicant's age, gender, tobacco status, and health status.
Riders may be available as free or fee-based extras on Final Expense Policies.

A Non-Forfeiture Rider can be offered in the form of Reduced Paid-Up Insurance or as Automatic Premium Loans. A Reduced Paid-Up Insurance benefit allows you to settle on a reduced death benefit amount that is fully paid for - no more payments. Automatic Premium Loans allow you to automatically borrow from the policy's cash value to pay for premium payments, this can be helpful if you forget to make consecutive payments outside of the policy's grace period.

An Accelerated Death Benefit can be included or come as an optional policy rider, it is triggered if you are diagnosed with a terminal illness. Basically, while you are still alive and having been diagnosed with a terminal illness, the policy pays out a portion of the face value to you. Some Accelerated Death Benefits are also triggered with a qualifying Nursing Home Stay.
