Cremation/Burial Expenses

Cremation expenses are $,1500

Burial Expenses range from $7,000-$40,000

Scene Clean Up

Clean up of the scene is not covered by insurance and is an expense to the family directly. 

This cost ranges from $1,000 - $6,000. 

Grief Counseling

Grief counseling is not covered by most insurances and costs the family $40-$100 each session. 


If only 1 family member goes once per week each month that is $160-$400 per month. 

Lost Wages

Many family members (parents/spouses) cannot return to work for 2 weeks to 6 months. Some that return to work end up getting fired, due to poor performance, or attendance, due to coping with grief. 


If the loss was a spouse, that income is lost as well.

Rent/Mortgage

It is common for families to lose their homes, or come very close to it, due to lost wages or losing employment. If the loss was a spouse, this impact is even more devastating, as a whole income is lost in an instant.
