General responsibility for funeral expenses

Who is legally responsible when a legal-age person dies?

Attorney Answers 1


Normally, the estate of the person who died is responsible for his / her funeral expenses. Sometimes people carry burial insurance policies which may cover some or all of the costs.

Please note that I do not practice in your state. The above is not intended as legal advice. There may be state-specific laws which make other provisions.
