Financial Strength


A.M. Best


It’s critically important that seniors who are purchasing funeral and burial insurance know that the insurer they select to put their trust in is a highly-rated company that continually demonstrates they will meet the needs of their policyholders, especially when a claim is filed. We believe that the A.M. Best rating for an insurance company is the best indication of how they will perform financially.
