Burial insurance
covers your burial at the issuing funeral home after you have paid the entire amount. If you transition before that time, you cannot be buried without paying.

Final Expense insurance is a whole life insurance policy. With a final expense policy you are covered for the full amount of your policy, the day of your first payment and the policy never changes as long as premiums are paid.
