In early April, the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) will begin providing financial assistance for funeral expenses incurred after January 20, 2020 for deaths related to coronavirus (COVID-19) to help ease some of the financial stress and burden caused by the pandemic.
FEMA will begin accepting applications for Funeral Assistance on Monday, April 12, 2021 through their dedicated call center at 844-684-6333. There is no deadline to apply.
Call the dedicated toll-free phone number (844-684-6333 | TTY: 800-462-7585) to get a COVID-19 Funeral Assistance application completed with help from FEMA's representatives. Multilingual services will be available.
Fraud Alert: FEMA has received reports of scammers reaching out to people offering to register them for funeral assistance. FEMA has not sent any such notifications and we do not contact people before they register for assistance.
What you can do to prepare:
If you are eligible for funeral assistance you will receive a check by mail, or funds by direct deposit, depending on which option you choose when you apply for assistance.
