When Support Is Needed

For most families, the Christmas dinner conversations isn’t about who does and does not have life insurance. Some even assume that those with financial security may have insurance and this is not always the case. We assist applicants who have family members or friends who were uninsured but also, underinsured. An individual can simply have insurance that doesn’t cover the entire cost to bury their loved one and will cause the family an extreme hardship. In either case Burden to Bear is available to service these individuals.
