    Nah, we have enough in savings to cover an emergency/crisis like that, and we have life insurance which would come through also.

    Same. They prey on people's fears. The market is saturated with insurances we don't need, it's sickening how companies exploit through fear based marketing.

    Same I'd rather have the savings for what ever emergency rather than giving that money to an insurance company... you'll probably have to jump through hoops to get your money...

    So am I. My Nan had one and passed away from cancer. It was all very sudden. Apparently terminal illness in the first 24 months isn't covered. My Mum had to take out a $6000 loan to pay for the funeral.

    OP do you have life insurance? IMO that is a necessity with young kids. And I believe some (if not most) of them do an advance payment to help with funeral costs.
