Families with a life insurance policy, pre-need agreement with a funeral home or have purchased a cemetery plot are not eligible for assistance.

Sam Houston National Cemetery if eligible.
Individuals that may qualify for assistance are: • Deceased individual living in Bexar County 30 days prior to death. • Having died of natural causes • With no life insurance • Without a pre-need with a funeral home • Without having purchased a cemetery plot
The next of kin will be charged a $28.00 fee payable to the contracted funeral home.
