Funeral Insurance

Funeral insurance provides a lump sum payment upon your death to help pay for your funeral and settle any other outstanding expenses, bills and accounts. Choosi offers a number of different funeral insurance policies, which provide benefits up to $15,000 – and that amount is tripled to $45,000 if the death is accidental.
