Financial Resources for End of Life

There may be resources to help us with the expenses of taking care of our departed. Often these resources are never tapped into but could have helped with the costs taken on by the surviving family or friends. We need to “look under every stone” to ensure that we have found all of these financial tools.

This guide on financial resources for 'end of life' was created by the United Way of Bruce County.
