When an eligible client dies:
NOTE: A claim for payment for reimbursement of funeral/burial expenses will not be processed for any client who has not been removed from the case or had the case canceled.
When there are no surviving family or friends:
NOTE: The FCRC must not take charge of or receive any of the deceased's cash assets.
The FCRC sends HFS 29 and HFS 94 to vendors for completion. If the vendor asks, provide a 6-month supply of forms based on how many forms the vendor uses. The Funeral and Burial Unit, Special Projects Section, handles form requests for Cook County
Local offices receive a monthly listing of claims paid during the previous month. This report includes the name of the claimant, name and case number of the deceased, amount paid by the Department, voucher number, and date of death. Use the list to
reply to inquiries of vendors or claimants.
