The Department of Social Services serves as the county's indigent burial application site. The Indigent Burial Program pays for the disposition of bodies of deceased county residents whose estate cannot provide for a burial. To qualify for indigent burial, the deceased must meet the following criteria:

  • He/she has no estate from which to pay the cost of a funeral
  • He/she has no family who can afford to provide the service
  • He/she is not eligible for burial assistance from the Social Security Administration or Veterans Administration
