Des Moines, Iowa — Homesteaders Life Company has expanded the availability of its new product feature Security Option Plus, which can help reduce the amount and frequency of shortfalls on insurance-funded prearranged funerals. Security Option Plus is now available in a total of 30 states and the District of Columbia.
“We are pleased to offer the additional protection of Security Option Plus to an even greater number of our funeral home customers and the families they serve,” said President-CEO Steve Lang. “Security Option Plus can help funeral home owners more confidently guarantee the coverage of prearranged funeral expenses.”
Available exclusively from Homesteaders, Security Option Plus increases the initial face amount of the insurance policy. Policy growth is applied to the increased face amount, providing further protection for the funeral home and allowing it to continue to offer valuable guaranteed protection to families.
