Burial Insurance in Durham, NC

Did you know that the average funeral in North Carolina costs between $7500 & $10000 dollars? At these costs, it’s no wonder that more people have been looking into final expense insurance. Final expense insurance, or burial insurance, doesn’t require a medical check up and most people can get approved for coverage. The best part is that once you have coverage, your premiums can never go up and can not be canceled so long as you are up to date on your premiums. 

Because your funeral expenses are not usually anticipated, they can place a financial strain on your family and loved ones. Unlike with life insurance, burial insurance can pay out in as little to 24-48 hours after you pass away, which means your family or loved ones can have some instant financial relief during a stressful time. At Triangle Life and Health we work with a number of different burial insurance providers so we can make sure to find you the best coverage at an affordable rate.
