Among some of the better-known insurers are Globe Life, Colonial Penn, and Mutual of Omaha.
Usually, these types of plans provide graded death benefits where the insured must live at least 2 years before a full death benefit would be paid out on the life insurance policy. If the insured were to die less than two years after buying the plan the beneficiary may only receive the premiums paid into the plan. This can vary by insurer and plan.
However, you can compare burial insurance plans by contacting a licensed insurance agent in your area, or calling the insurers direct for a quote.
