We provide help with applications for financial assistance to pay for funeral and burial expenses for Denver County decedents. Applicants for burial assistance must qualify financially, either because the decedent did not leave sufficient funds for funeral and burial expenses and their family members are either financially unable to provide for such expenses or cannot be contacted within a reasonable time.. The assets and resources of the deceased and all responsible parties will be considered when determining eligibility.
Applicants are seen by appointment only. To make an appointment, call 720-944-2175.
Please have the following information ready when you call:
In most cases, an appointment will be scheduled for the same day. Eligibility will usually be determined within 24 hours. This same information is available on the Burial Assistance Information line at (720) 944-2548 and you can call (720) 944-2175 for more information.
