Getting Burial Insurance is the same across the board. The first step is to find an agent that YOU trust. That is so important.

Our clients are typically paying 30-40% less than they would with other agents.

Once you have found the right plan, it is very easy from here. The agent basically does all the work. What we do in this case is apply for the coverage. This is done many times by Docusign, or Electronic signature. In some cases, a phone interview with the carrier is done and 30 minutes later, you have burial insurance! it is as simple as that.
