Exploring Beyond Life Insurance: Additional Death Benefits You May Qualify For

Life insurance is often relied upon to cover the final expenses of a loved one, providing financial support during a difficult time. While life insurance is crucial, there are other resources that may offer additional assistance to those left behind. Here are some death benefit resources you may qualify for:

  1. Social Security: If you are currently receiving Social Security benefits, your survivor will automatically receive a small death benefit ($255) upon your passing. If Social Security benefits are not being received, the death must be reported within two years to qualify for the payment. Funeral directors can help with this process.
  2. Veterans Benefits: Veterans and their families may be eligible for various benefits upon death, including an honorary flag and a burial plot. Keeping all military records from their service with important papers and documents can be helpful in applying for these benefits.
  3. Civic Groups and Service Clubs: Some service clubs and groups provide death benefits to their members. It’s worth exploring the benefits of any club or group your loved one may have been a part of. Additionally, benefits may be available from employers, fraternal groups, and other organizations they were associated with.
