To qualify for Indigent Burial, the deceased must meet the following criteria:

  1. They have no estate from which to pay the cost of a funeral
  2. They have no family who can afford providing the service
  3. They are not eligible for burial assistance from the Social Security Administration or Veterans Administration.
