Do I have to use burial insurance benefits on funeral expenses?

After the policyholder of a burial insurance plan passes away, the policy beneficiary is free to use the funds however they like. Most beneficiaries use at least part of the payout to cover burial expenses, but it is not required. Burial insurance benefit payouts may be used for any purchase, bill, debt, expense, or loan at the discretion of the beneficiary. Burial insurance payouts are usually made in cash and they usually exempt from income tax.

How do you apply for burial insurance with American General Life Insurance Company?

The simplest way to obtain burial insurance is to apply online at the website of your preferred insurance company. In most cases, you’ll need to create a website account, provide your personal information, and fill out a short medical-related questionnaire. If you’d rather talk with an agent in person, you can either call the company or visit a branch office if there is one in your local area.

Do burial insurance premiums change?

Most burial insurance policies have guaranteed premiums. This means that the payments will never change as long as they are made on time. Premiums are determined based on your age, your health, and various other factors. Once you have accepted an offered premium, however, it will not change even as you get older or if your health changes.
