When death touches someone close, it's impossible to avoid the emotional upset, but it is Possible to avoid the financial problems of a funeral. In Alabama, thousands of people are doing something about it. They' re buying funeral insurance. It is estimated that two out of every three persons who die in Alabama each year are covered by a funeral insurance Policy. By far the most popular is the Brown-Service Funeral Policy issued by Liberty National Life Insurance Company. Interesting facts, aren't they? Let's take a closer look" 1. Why do so many Alabamians own funeral policies? Funeral insurance is a convenient, simple, inexpensive way to handle a major expense. It enables you to prepay the costs of a funeral so the cash from your regular life insurance can be used to meet other 2. How does funeral insurance help you? First, small payments can be made Over a period of time. Weekly. Monthly. Yearly. Your choice. Second, if death should occur before the policy is paid up, no more payments are due. Total policy benefits are immediately in effect. And third, the purchase of a Brown-Service Funeral Policy assures that the expense of your funeral will not be a burden upon your estate or your family. 3. How much does a Brown-Service Funeral Policy cost? The premiums are reasonable. Very reasonable. They're based on the actual cost of providing the funeral. Because of the large number of funerals provided under this plan each year our cost is less than the retail value of the funeral. This saving is passed on to you. For example, if you're 30 years old, your wife is 27 and your child is 8, you can buy three policies paid up in ten years for only $1.78 a week. Each policy will provide a 5600 funeral. The most you can pay is $925.60 (less if death occurs early). The total retail value of the three funerals to be provided is $1800. That's almost twice as much as the most you could pay. 4. If you use a funeral policy, who will provide the funeral? Most of the leading Funeral Directors in Alabama are authorized to perform the service provided by Brown- Service Funeral Policies. Everything is taken care of for you through the authorized funeral home of your choice. These funeral homes are located in every part of the state. 5. How flexible is a Brown- Service Funeral Policy? Suppose a more expensive funeral is selected. No problem. The policy is completely flexible. The authorized Funeral LIFE INSURANCE HOME OFFICE: BIRMINGHAM, ALABAMA Director will give credit for the full retail value of the policy on the cost of the funeral selected. 6. What do you get for your money? Your invested dollar returns top value. A funeral provided by any Brown- Service Funeral Policy is always equal to or better than any funeral available for the dollar face value of the policy. 7. What benefits are provided if death occurs in Alabama? The policyholder will get a complete funeral consisting of: Transportation to the funeral home up to 35 miles, embalming, preparation for burial, casket, burial suit or dress, the services of an experienced Funeral Director, a place for holding the memorial service, and transportation to the place of interment up to 35 miles. 8. What benefits are provided if death occurs outside of Alabama? The policy will pay a cash benefit as specified in the policy. On older policies the cash benefit is half the retail value and on currently issued policies it is two-thirds of the retail value. 9. Should funeral insurance be a part of insurance planning? Definitely. It meets the very first need for insurance at the time of death. It is the easiest, the most convenient, and least expensive way to help your family to do the hardest thing they will ever have to do. If you don't have a Brown-Service Funeral Policy, now is the time to do some- thing about it. See your Liberty National agent. Let him explain how easily you can have this most basic of all insurance.
