Burial insurance is uniquely created to cover one-time and short-term expenses, where its major application is covering funeral costs, in contrast to conventional universal, whole life, and term life policies. However, as the number of insurance companies has grown, product bundling has become a very common practice in the insurance industry. As a result, burial insurance can now be used to pay for any final expenses, such as unpaid medical bills, credit card debt, or other bills accumulated in the month of death (utility bills, phone bills, etc.).

To take advantage of diverse sorts of services and technological capabilities needed for future success, forward-thinking insurers are widening their options and going beyond conventional vendors. To improve company position in the global burial insurance market, these companies have used a variety of strategies, including partnerships, collaborations, product launches, joint ventures, and mergers and acquisitions.

For instance, on February 28, 2022, Westpac Life was bought by Fidelity Life, the country’s largest privately owned life insurance provider, for 400 million New Zealand dollars. In connection with the sale, Westpac Life changed its name to Fidelity Insurance and signed a 15-year contract with Westpac NZ for the distribution of life insurance. For the next 15 years, Westpac NZ will offer Fidelity Insurance products to its retail clients as part of this agreement. The deal’s parameters haven’t altered since they were initially disclosed on July 6, 2021.
