Step 3: pay funeral costs
Ensure that funeral expenses have been paid for by the estate. If they were not, facilitate reimbursement.
Check the accuracy of each bill. Ensure that you were not charged for any services that were not provided and that the cost aligns with what was expected. Use Funeral Preferences1 and Funeral Preferences2 to assist.
Confirm that bills have been received and paid for the following:
- fees for funeral home services including:
- Multiple funeral homes may be paid if the body was transported.
- child care or pet care
Document personal expenses in detail to receive reimbursement. Executor Expenses may be used as a tool.
