The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) has authorized $2 billion to provide financial assistance to families who paid for funeral costs specifically related to Coronavirus Disease (COVID-19). The reimbursement applies to funeral expenses incurred after January 20, 2020. Claims are capped at $9,000.
Phaneuf Funeral Homes and Crematorium will provide our New Hampshire and Vermont families updated information and guidance for the reimbursement of funeral expenses. For example, Phaneuf can provide families with itemized funeral receipts and assist with procuring a death certificate.
