All claimants must accept the IDHS standard for the type of claim filed. They must cooperate with the Funeral and Burial Unit in securing information about available resources when needed.
NOTE: Family Community Resource Centers no longer review funeral and burial Vendor and Reimbursement claims. All claims are processed in the Local Office of Transactions & Support Services (LOTSS) by the Funeral and Burial Unit. These claims include those filed on the death of a child who was receiving Foster Care/Adoption Care Assistance.
Vendor and Reimbursement claims are submitted to the Funeral and Burial Unit for review and processing (see WAG 22-06-07). All payments for claims approved by the Funeral and Burial Unit are issued by the Illinois Office of the Comptroller.
