Managing a funeral after an unexpected death can mean additional stress for a family already coping with grief. And it’s not always easy to ask for help with funeral expenses, especially since many people are in the dark as to how much funerals can actually cost.
According to eFuneral.com, in 2012 the average cost for a burial service was $8,565 and $3,725 for cremation. Few people are lucky enough to have this large sum at their quick disposal, which means that many families will have to dip into their savings accounts or take out loans in order to cover it.
But if you and your family are feeling overwhelmed by funeral costs, it’s important to know you’re not alone. It’s normal to need help planning a funeral, and it’s also normal to need help paying for one.
*Help from the big guys*
The first place to start looking for help with funeral expenses is from governmental agencies. Some state and government agencies have special programs to help survivors with the accumulation of expenses associated with the death of a loved one. For example:
Anyone receiving Social Security is entitled to a lump sum death payment of $255 to a surviving spouse or a child who is under 18.
Social Service may also contribute towards funeral expenses after reviewing available assets.
Finally, the Veterans Administration can be a valid resource for the dependents of a late veteran.
But if you’ve already looked into these programs and need additional help, creating a GiveForward page could be your answer. Consider starting a Memorial Fundraiser for a loved one who has just passed away.
*Help from the people who matter*
With a memorial fundraising page, you can easily raise large sums of money by sharing it with your extended social network online, and also provide friends and family members with a space to share kind words and memories.
Seeing words of encouragement during this difficult time can mean the world to a family mourning a loved one’s passing. Watching donations flow in to get closer to reaching their fundraising goal can make a world of difference in that same family’s efforts to make funeral arrangements.
By providing a platform for families to get help with funeral expenses and creating an online support system, memorial fundraising profiles allow a community to stay connected and find peace.
So don’t be afraid to ask for help – you could find overwhelming support and encouragement to help you through these hard times and let you focus on healing
