Social Security Benefit
Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) also has a funeral benefit of $255 available to a spouse or dependent children of the deceased, if the deceased was receiving SSDI. You can apply for this benefit at the same time you would apply for survivor's benefits, which are also available for spouses and children of deceased SSDI recipients.
You may also want to have a legal document called a Declaration As To Remains.
This document specifies what you want done after you die in terms of burial and funeral arrangements. A Declaration As To Remains can be quite beneficial, because it allows you to be clear about what your wishes are after your death.
