Who Needs Burial Insurance
Most Americans can benefit from having a Burial Insurance policy in place.

You want to take control and attain more peace of mind.
You have cash and other assets but do not want to use those for funeral and burial costs. You would like to have a plan specifically final expenses.
You would like to have a simple financial plan to leave money to a spouse, children, or grandchildren.
