Anyone who has ever had to assist with funeral arrangements for a loved one who didn’t have life insurance knows how stressful it can be. Not only does it take a toll on us emotionally, it can often put significant financial stress on us as well. State Farm Agent Melanie Bakala knows that the last thing anyone wants to do is put our loved ones in that same situation when it comes to their own funeral.

“The average funeral typically costs around $8,000,” said Bakala.  If the cost of your funeral would create a financial burden if your family members had to pay for it,  Final expense insurance (sometimes called burial insurance or funeral insurance) can ease the financial burden and stress on grieving loved ones by covering those costs.
