There are many government programs designed to assist people who have to deal with the financial burden that occurs upon the death of a loved one. These include:
- Survivor’s pensions;
- Death Benefits;
- Benefits for Children;
- Allowance for a surviving spouse;
- Assistance for funeral expenses;
- Surviving Dependents’ benefits For The Disabled; and
- Compassionate care benefits.
For more information on these issues I refer you to this excellent site.
