Final Expense Insurance

Final Expense is much more than funeral insurance. Besides funeral costs, it covers a range of expenses — from unpaid debts and medical bills to probate fees and college tuition. With our Guaranteed Assurance and Day 1 coverage, Great Western’s Final Expense plan can help your family pay for more than your funeral.
