Recent reports indicate that the cost of funerals, especially taxpayer-funded funerals, is rising. In Indiana, one township has seen a rise for covering funeral costs for low-income families rise to almost $60,000 in 2011 from $28,000 in 2007.


Providing final care for the deceased whose family simply cannot afford the cost is seen by a necessary expense by many townships. To a family without the means, knowing that their loved one is eligible for this kind of coverage is a great relief at a time of great loss and emotional pain.


Another kind of funeral coverage can be found by low-income families in the form of burial clubs or societies. Usually offered by churches or other civic organizations, burial clubs have a long history of providing families in need with a decent burial for their loved ones.


Looking for information on you city's web site may provide information on where these clubs can be found. Many churches today can be contacted via email. Another source for funeral payment assistance may be found at organizations like the Red Cross or YMCA.
