At Funeral Funds of America, we specialize in helping people find the lowest-priced:
- First-day coverage
- Burial insurance
- Cremation insurance
- Final expense insurance
- Funeral Insurance
- Whole life insurance
We are licensed in all 50 states, and our FIRST-DAY COVERAGE provides immediate protection whenever a death occurs, regardless of your current health.
What To Avoid
Many companies offer insurance that is not appropriate for final expenses.
We recommend you:
- Avoid policies that go up in price in the future
- Avoid policies that cancel after you turn age 80
- Avoid policies that have 2-4 year waiting periods
- Avoid accidents that only cover accidental death
- Avoid companies that only offer their own products for sale
What To Buy
FIRST-DAY COVERAGE – These are the plans we help people with. You get immediate first-day coverage and the lowest pricing. Fast cash payment of death benefit, typically within 24-48 hours.
GRADED COVERAGE – These plans often payout 30-40% of your death benefit in year one, 60-70% in year two, and 100% in year three. We never recommend going with a 3-year waiting period policy.
2-YEAR WAITING PERIOD – These plans won’t pay if a death occurs in the first two years for health or medical reasons. These plans also cost 40-100% more than 1st-day coverage plans.
Insurance company coverage generally ranges from $2,500 to $40,000, depending on the company.
Since you are likely not planning on dying soon, you may want additional insurance to cover anticipated price increases in the future due to inflation.
Common coverage amounts we help people with:
- $8,000-$15,000 is generally adequate for a funeral or burial (your needs may be different)
- $1,000 to $2,000 is generally adequate to pay for a cremation alone.
- $2,000 to $5,000 is generally adequate to pay for a cremation and ceremony.
Your needs may be different. If so, we can help.

Home Visits Not Needed
We don’t recommend anyone visit your home to sell you insurance.
There’s no need to these days.
With our plans, no awkward home visits with doctors, nurses, or pesky door-to-door salespeople are needed.
We can provide you with rates, coverage, benefits, and same-day approvals 100% over the phone.
Been Denied In The Past
Yes, but it depends on what company denied you and why you were denied.
Some companies deny more people than others for any number of reasons.
When that happens, we can easily shop for other companies that have more lenient underwriting guidelines to get you approved.
How To Qualify
Your eligibility and rates are determined by age, gender, and overall health.
We will need to know more about your overall health history to get you the best policy with the lowest rates.
