For those in financial hardship or considered low-income, you may be eligible for financial assistance to help cover burial costs through the Department of Public Welfare And Social Security.
The Department of Public Welfare
The Department of Public Welfare currently has a program that provides limited support to residents without sufficient funds. They will pay funeral home costs up to $1,100 if the total cost does not exceed $1,500. The payment must be a direct transaction between the funeral home and the DPWAS. (Who can apply for funeral and burial payment assistance? | Mass.gov)
