The U.S. Government Has Not Increased Social Security’s
One-Time Death Benefit in Over Forty Years!
Though your family may be eligible for Social Security’s one-time death benefit of $255, this amount has not increased with the cost of living and is far below today’s average funeral costs.
In fact, the average cost for final expenses—including burial costs, uninsured medical expenses, legal fees and taxes—has reached $20,000.* And that estimate does not include any outstanding bills or obligations.
Life insurance can help pay expenses not covered by Social Security’s death benefit. Life insurance can also protect families from financial burdens resulting from the loss of a loved one.
