What is PlanRight Whole Life Insurance? 

Each of us will likely have to face the death of a close family member one day, and worrying about funeral costs will only add to the pain and grief. While there’s nothing we can do to ease the pain of loss, planning ahead can remove the financial burden of final expenses.

According to the National Funeral Directors Association, the average cost of a funeral, including vault, in 2014 was $8,5081 And, this cost does not include the cemetery plot, monument, flowers, obituary or other cash expenses2, which could push the cost well over $10,000.
