We hate the idea of wasting a lot of money on high-pricedfit- nerals and would like some advice onscrne simple and cheap send- Simple.Seniors Dear Simple, With the average cost of a full- service funeral running around $11,000 today, many people are seeking simple ways to make their final farewell more affordable. De- pending on how you want to go, here are several low-cost options to consider. Direct Cremation If you and your husband are in— terested in cremation, a direct cre- mation is the simplest and least ex- pensive way to go. It includes picking up the body, completing and filing (:1er “economy paperwork, the cremation itself and returning the cremated remains to the fami- ly. There’s no embalming, formal Viewing or casket. A simple card- board bOx called an “alternative container” is used to hold the body. Depending on where you live and thefuneral home you choose, the average cost for a direct cre- mation runs between $1,000 and $3,000. If you want additional services beyond what a direct cre- mation offers, ask the funeral home for an itemized price list that cov- ers the other services cost, so you know exactly what you’re getting. A11 providers are required by law to provide this. To locate nearby fuireral homes, look in your local yellow pages, or Google “cremation” or “frmeral” follovved by your city and state. You can also get good information on- line at Partingcom, which lets you comparemricqs from funeral providéisfih a3yor’irfarea based; on whatiy‘o'uiwiant; ;..;_ .2 , Immediate or Direct Burial For: THE moors . -Walsh County Veterans Service Office If you’re interested in being buried, an immediate/direct burial is the most basic and low-cost op- tion. With an immediate burial, your body would be buried in a sim- ‘ple container shortly after death, skipping the embalming, viewing and use of the funeral facilities. . If your family wants a memori- al service, they can have it at the graveside at your place of worship or at home without the body. These servicesusually cost be- tween $1,800 and $3,500, not counting cemetery charges, which can run you an additional $1 ,000 to $3,000. All funeral homes offer di- rect burial. Green Burial An eco-fn'endly green burial is another affordable way to go that costs anywhere from $1,000 to $4,000 depending on the provider. With a green cemetery burial, the body is buried in a biodegradable coffin or just wrapped in a shroud, without embahning chemicals or a burial vault. The Green Burial Council (GreenBurialCouncil.org, 888-966- 3330) has a state listing of cemetery operators who accommodate green burials, as well as funeral profes- sionals who provide the services. Anatomical Donation If you’d like to eliminate your cremation/burial costs all together, as well as help advance medical re- search, you and your husband should consider donating your bod- ies to science. This option won’t cost you a cent, however, some pro- grams may charge a small fee to transport your body to their facili- ty. ' After using your body for med- ical research projects, anatomy les- sons and surgical practice, your re- mains will be cremated and-your ashes will be buriedlor scattered in a local. cemetery , or returned to ilyour family, usually. within a year. nt. page Debt Collection and Debt Relief The US. Department of Veterans Affair's (VA) Debt Management, Center (DMC) resumed sending debt notification letters on October 1, 2021. Ifyou owe money to VA for an overpayment related to VBA ben- efits, here is what you need to know. VA automatically deferred col- lection on VBA benefit debts created on or after April 6, 2020, through ‘ September 30, 2021, to provide relief from the COVID-l9 pan- demic. Benefit debts created prior to April 6, 2020, had collection de- ferred upon request. VA also paused all collection activity on debts un- der the jurisdiction of the US. De- . ‘partment of the Treasury until Sep- tember 30, 2021. Most VBA benefit debts are col- lected by the VA DMC.‘ This in- cludes debts for benefits, like com- pensation, pension and education. If VBA created a debt for you while collection was deferred, you likely received informational letters fiom DMC letting you know your debt existed, but you didn’t need to act until after September 30 unless you chose to do so. ' Relief Options If you are experiencing financial difliculty and can’t repay your VA debt right away, there are a variety of relief options available, including: Extending repayment plans Requesting debt forgiveness through the waiver process Submitting a compromise offer to settle the debt for less than the full amount I Requesting a temporary hardship suspension of repayment until Sep- tember 30, 2022 . debt — Laurie Larson What happens if you don’t con- tact DMC when you receive your debt notice? If you are receiving VA benefits, VA will withhold money flom your benefit payments to pay an out- standing debt. It is important to con- tact DMC once you receive your debt notification letter if the amount VA is proposing to withhold from your benefits doesn’t work for you. Eventually, unpaid debts can be- come delinquent and subject to re- ferral to the Department of the Treasury and/or Credit Reporting Agencies. Currently, DMC is con- tinuing to pause new benefit debt re- ferrals to the Department of Treas- ury or Credit Reporting Agencies to make sure Veterans have plenty of time to make payment arrange- ments or request relief. For any debts that were already referred before the pandemic, Treasury is resuming collection activities beginning Oct. 1, 2021. If you need assistance with op- tions for your VBA benefit debt, call the DMC at 1-800-827-0648.
