If funeral services are more than what the County will pay, can I pay the difference?
No, the total funeral expenses cannot exceed the amount of assistance the County is paying. There is a negotiated price with several of the local mortuaries, so the cost of cremation services is already known. For more information please call 530-265-1471.
