The figures in the fields below are national median and average funeral expenses in the United States of an adult burial or cremation. Both selections include costs for a viewing and cemetery burial. Prices vary significantly by state. You may edit and add costs in the fields to better fit your location and plans. For example, if you choose a direct cremation without an urn burial, remove the costs in the “Embalming,” “Burial/Urn/Liner,” and
“Monument/tombstone and installation fees” fields.

With a Preneed plan, you lock in present day

With a Final Expense plan, you pay a monthly premium until you pass away. Your beneficiaries can use the payout for your funeral costs and other expenses.
This amount is the Total Funeral Expenses listed above affected by inflation at your estimated life expectancy. You will need to set this amount aside to avoid having your loved ones pay this out of pocket.
