KIM WILHELM – CEO

I started Final Expense Insurance to help protect seniors from a lot of the shady characters in the final expense space. Some of these companies advertise low rates like $9.99 per month of final expense insurance so they can get seniors to call in, only to find out it’s for a measly $1,000 of coverage. It just ain’t right!

  • Licensed insurance agent since 1996
  • Has grown Final Expense Direct to over 50 employees
  • Led Final Expense Direct to Inc 5000 list in 2016, 2017, and 2018
