The Personal Injury Protection Plan (PIPP) provides a payment for funeral expenses.
Arrangements can be made to pay the funeral expenses directly from PIPP or from the deceased's estate. The estate will be reimbursed based on copies of invoices or receipts submitted for expenses incurred.
Funeral expenses can include the costs of transporting the deceased, funeral home services, cremation, a cemetery burial plot and a grave marker. Your case manager can advise what other related expenses may also be considered under this coverage.
Each year on March 1, we use the Consumer Price Index to adjust the funeral expense coverage. Please refer to the PIPP Benefits outline for the current payment rate.
