The life insurance coverage that is presently offered by my employer will not continue once I retire. My investments are sufficient to care for my family after my death but I want to make sure that they have the money they need to cover any of my end of life expenses. The State Farm final expense policy is exactly what I was looking for. It is for $10,000 and the premiums are quite low even at my somewhat advanced age of 62. My regular agent suggested it to me during our annual policy review and I am really glad that she did!
