Our preferred life insurance feature, DearbornCares, provides an advance payment up to $10,000 within 48 hours of a loved one’s death. It was developed to help beneficiaries cover immediate expenses such as funeral costs and medical bills. New LifeSecure Hospital Recovery Recognizing that many individuals who need hospital care are held in an observation unit instead of being admitted as inpatients, LifeSecure added up to four days of observation unit coverage and increased the number of benefit days annually to one of their hospital recovery offerings.
