Funeral expenses calculator

It can be a challenge to decide how to pay for your end-of-life plans. This funeral expenses calculator will help estimate your burial and final expenses, and then it will show how those costs could be affected by inflation over time. The data will help you determine whether Final Expense or Preneed Funeral insurance will meet your needs.

The figures in the fields below are national median and average funeral expenses in the United States of an adult burial or cremation. Both selections include costs for a viewing and cemetery burial. Prices vary significantly by state. You may edit and add costs in the fields to better fit your location and plans. For example, if you choose a direct cremation without an urn burial, remove the costs in the “Embalming,” “Burial/Urn/Liner,” and “Monument/tombstone and installation fees” fields.
