Payments

Just as our preneed funeral insurance and final expense insurance plans offer options for covering funeral expenses, Great Western Insurance Company offers a variety of payment and premium options, too. Choose monthly premiums, a single premium, or pay off your policy early — whatever fits your financial situation.


Final Expense Insurance Payment Options

Monthly Final Expense Premiums via Automatic Bank Draft

If you are a policyholder who pays monthly premiums, automatic bank draft is our recommended payment method for you. No additional fees or processing costs apply. You may switch to automatic bank draft anytime during your policy period, as long as your Final Expense insurance policy is current. However, by switching today, your policy may qualify for savings on your monthly payment immediately. Call our Payments Department at (866) 689-1409 to set up your account. Following processing, your next premium will be paid automatically on the day of the month you select.

Monthly Final Expense Premiums via Credit or Debit Card

To make online credit or debit card payments for Final Expense insurance policies, you will need to create an account in our customer portal. After you register, you may make a one-time credit or debit card payment. Recurring credit card payments are not available at this time, but you may visit the customer portal each month to make a payment.

Preneed Funeral Insurance Payment Options

Monthly Preneed Premiums via Automatic Bank Draft

If you are a policyholder who pays monthly premiums, automatic bank draft is our recommended payment method. No additional fees or processing costs apply, and you may qualify to save $2 off each regular premium payment. You may switch to automatic bank draft anytime during your policy period, as long as your Preneed Funeral insurance policy is current. However, by switching today, your policy may qualify for savings on your monthly payment immediately. Call our Payments Department at (866) 689-1409 to set up your account. Following processing, your next premium will be paid automatically on the day of the month you select.

Monthly Preneed Premiums via Credit or Debit Card

As a policyholder, you may use our Simply Easier Payments (SEP) to make a monthly premium payment with a credit card or debit card. This practice does not affect or alter the cost of the insurance, but a fee may be applied to credit card payments.

Pay Monthly Premium

Early Preneed Pay-off via Credit or Debit Card

If you are a policyholder interested in paying off your policy early, you may do so with a credit card or debit card. A fee may be applied to credit card payments, but you may qualify for an early pay-off discount. Call the Payments Department at (866) 689-1409 for more details.
