Hi from just answer. I'm PDtax, and will assist.

There isn't a burial benefit available from medicare. There is a $255 social security burial benefit if she was eligible.

Medicare will pay final medical expenses, but not burial or funeral costs.

Thanks for asking at just answer. Positive feedback is appreciated. I'm PDtax.
