None. They are both common terms for a small value, whole life inucnarse policy.If prepaid funeral is too expensive, likely the low value whole life inucnarse will be, too.If they went for a guaranteed issue (meaning, no medical exam, no qualifying), a $10,000 policy for each of them is probably going to cost around $50 a month, per person.
