Indigent Burials

Burial assistance is provided to Funeral Homes for deceased individuals who are found to be financially indigent. Eligibility requires that the individual be 18 years of age or older with estates demonstrating inability to pay, or for minor children whose parents demonstrate an inability to pay. The criteria for eligibility are the Federal Poverty Guidelines. This benefit is available for all indigent deaths in the County regardless of permanent residency. There is no fee, but the County reserves the right to file a lien on real property for repayment.

Eligibility is determined by use of financial assessment forms that must be completed by the family at the funeral home. The funeral home director will contact Cochise Health and Social Services. For more program information please call (520) 432-9400.
