How to Get the Best Burial Insurance in Idaho

Burial Insurance Idaho

Burial Insurance is not a topic that a lot of people want to talk about. Let’s face it. It’s sad. It’s depressing to think about the end of life.  And it is also, in many cases, a very confusing topic. What final expense insurance company should you go with? How much can you afford each month? How much coverage do you need? Are you healthy enough? What about those two-year waiting periods you always here about? Read on… We will break it down for Idaho residents who want to get the best burial insurance and show you just how simple we make it.

We will also go over some Idaho state specific statistics and look at what makes the Gem State is so outstanding! The state motto of Idaho is “Esto perpetua”, which translated from Latin to English means “Let it be perpetual”. Let’s think about that for a moment in terms of burial insurance. Basically, the way I view this phrase is to leave your loved ones a legacy. Allow your life to remain eternal, without burdening your family financially.

The Financial Implications of Burial and Cremation

Folks in Idaho are typically considered very friendly but also somewhat reserved at times. But for sure, Idahoans are family people. So, as you are reading this article, please consider what a valuable financial asset final expense insurance will be for your family.

Perhaps you are considering getting burial coverage for yourself or for another family member. You know that end of life expense costs are not cheap. Perhaps you have personally experienced this yourself when a family member has passed without insurance or any planning in place.

Most seniors have a will in place that probably includes their final wishes upon passing. But will you or your spouse or children have the means available to cover the costs? Even if you or they do, we can never predict what hardships may come.

Think about your car or homeowner’s insurance. None of us have a crystal ball that let’s us know that in 2 months from know we will get hit by a reckless driver or that our home will be flooded beyond repair.

And none of us know (thank God!) when we will become ill or ultimately, die.

Funeral and Cremation Costs in Idaho

In Idaho the average cost of a traditional funeral in Idaho is in the region of $6,875 (including Professional Services, Embalming, Opening/Closing, Hearse, Refrigeration, Vault, Prep, Transfer & Flowers). This generally means that the full cost of a funeral in Idaho can skyrocket to about $10,000 when all of the other arrangements are involved.

Now cremation is less expensive, costing Idaho residents on average $3,000. Now keep in mind that that cost does not include any ceremony costs and it depends largely on what the deceased’s wishes were. So, $3,000 could skyrocket to much more.

You don’t want your loved ones and family struggling to carry out you end of life wishes. Let them have the emotional place to grieve and pray. Obviously, most people in Idaho and beyond realize that this is a huge financial burden to leave behind on their families. How else can we say it… Esto perpetua”.
