What are the benefits of preneed insurance?

Of the benefits of preneed insurance, the first and foremost is to protect the deceased person’s family and financial assets. Another is that the money going into the insurance is an exempt asset, meaning there is no income tax on policy growth. The insurance policy amount to cover final expenses is generally exempt from Medicaid eligibility. Finally, once a person establishes preneed insurance coverage, the policy locks in at that price and remains fixed until the person passes.
