Burial insurance usually refers to a whole life insurance policy with a death benefit of from $3,000 up to $20,000 or more.

As its name implies, people buy this type of life insurance 
policy to provide money to pay for the funeral and burial costs for themselves and/or family members.

Many people who do not have enough money saved to cover the cost of their final expenses choose to purchase a burial 
policy so their loved ones do not have to suffer the financial stress of finding money to pay for their funeral and burial upon their passing.
