I have life insurance that I have had since I was a teenager, I also have life insurance on both my children I pay these premiums one a month and have been doing this since the day the insurance started. The insurance is for my family to have to pay my expenses after my death and to have a burial for me. Do you have life insurance on yourself so that your family won't have a problem taking care of your remains after death? If not how are you prepared for this? I had an uncle that passed and the family had to ask for assistance in his burial. I had a niece whose child passed and she didn't have any money to bury her child.

I have insurance for burial... and i already finished paying for the premiums... a few years ago... and if in case something happens to me... i am a member of SSS... so that burial insurance is just additional precaution since my the SSS would pay for most of the burial expenses... and my daughter and husband would get monthly payment... for a very long time... it is not much... but at least they will get something...

Hi Chevee, I have no life insurance yet, but there are only two of us here so I think I better get my skates on and get one out. Tamara

yes I do have. i paid for 5 years . when I passe away all my family will do is to cry. Everything will be taken cared of by the Insurance company from make up to the coffin to the burial place etc.

Sadly, I do not have insurance for that. I guess my children had better make a lot of money to help out when the time comes. Either that or I will just have to keep on living

My first husband made a certain amount of insurance a priority, and so does this husband. I have or had burial policies on each of my kids. It reverted to their hands when they got married. Whether they keep it up or not is their business. We do not cut out the life insurance, at least not so far. It comes out in an automatic payment, so we do not even see it.
