Most immigrants’ extended family members reside in their countries of origin. Parents, brothers, sisters and even their fully grown children are sometimes left behind and as the primary bread winner, most of these relatives depend on you when death strikes any of them. When this happens, most of these immigrants lack the money to cover burial and travel expenses to these distant lands to lay to rest a beloved family member who has died.
When confronted with a sudden death in the family, often times, people think their life insurance policy will aid them in burial and bereavement costs. They are often surprised to discover life insurance is not designed to handle these sudden expenses. Once they put in a claim, they realize the process can take months before a check is issued. This often leaves the survivor financially vulnerable for an excruciating amount of time.

Ukarimu VS. Others
Ukarimu accepts all immigrant families into its final expenses program. This program began after the founder realized that most immigrant families have majority of their family members still in their countries of origin, and when death occurs to a family member be it here in the USA or back home, travel arrangements must be made to cater to the burial needs of the departed soul.
Planning ahead gives you peace of mind, a safety net, and relieves you and your loved ones of a financial burden. This program is geared to immigrant families that have most of their family members outside the United States and as such when misfortune strikes to any of these family members, the expenses that come with it can be devastating. That is how Ukarimu steps in to assist!
