How much does it cost to bury someone? Cracka ♥ 2 kids; North Carolina 23482 posts

My dad is 60 and I'm trying to figure out how much life insurance I should get for him. He has a place to be buried (I believe). My Grandma bought it for him when she bought hers & her husbands in the 80s. I think he still has the deed to it, but I will check.

So full funeral and burial. Flowers, everything. How much do you think it costs?? More than 10K?

No, he can't afford it and he doesn't have any already or any savings.

I'm just looking for the cost of burial at this point, so I know how much to buy.

I bought term lime for me and my son 3 years ago. I pay $54 a month for me to have $50K whole life and him to have $25 K whole life. I also have life insurance at work that totals about $120K. I feel like $170K iis not enough, but it's all I can afford right now lol.

I was looking to get 10K for my dad, and I feel I should get Whole Life.He' s60 but not in the best health. I'd feel stupid if I got Term life and he out lived it.

This sounds so morbid. GAH.

Depending on a lot of things, casket, burial....the average cost is about $10K.

If the kid is underage, ususally it goes to whomever their legal guardian is, if you leave it to a kid.
