Funeral Reimbursement for COVID Deaths this Year

Funeral Reimbursement for COVID Deaths this Year

The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) announced it will  allocate $2 billion — $7,000 per family — for COVID-19-related funeral costs starting in April. The reimbursements are part of the Coronavirus Response and Relief Supplemental Appropriations Act of 2021 and the American Rescue Plan Act of 2021, both signed into law by the president this month. Qualifications: the funeral expenses were incurred after Jan. 20, 2020; the death must have occurred in the U.S.; death certificate must say that the cause of death was COVID-19; the applicant must be a U.S. citizen, noncitizen national or legal immigrant of the U.S., but the deceased does not need a specific legal status. FEMA will begin taking applications in April. Learn more here. The previous FEMA funeral reimbursement plan only covered COVID-19 funeral expenses through Dec.31, 2020.
