Burial vaults are often much more expensive than grave liners. Grave liners usually cost between $700 and $1000, while burial vaults usually cost between $900 and $7000, though they can cost as much as $10,000 or $13,000.
Expenses become even more overwhelming when you consider that Social Security only pays a $255 death benefit, and only if you qualify. That still leaves all or most of the expenses for your family to cover. A life insurance policy from American Income Life can help cover these expenses and provide security for your family during their time of grieving.
