There are a number of options available, including:

  • Determine if the deceased person qualifies for any entitlements. Check with the Social Security Administration and the Department of Veterans Affairs. Many people are entitled to get financial assistance with their funeral costs from these agencies if they qualify.
  • Review all insurance policies the deceased person has, including life insurance. Some life insurance policies have coverage clauses for funeral-related costs.
  • Find local charities providing financial help for funeral expenses. Search for nonprofit organizations and for churches in your area.
  • Talk to your funeral director about cremation options - these can be much less expensive depending on your choices.
