Illinois Behind On Indigent Funeral PaymentsLincoln, IL -- A new report finds the state of Illinois is months behind in its payments for conducting funerals for the indigent. Illinois' economic woes have placed these funerals on a list of low-priority concerns for the state. But that's not welcome news for statewide funeral directors and cemeteries who say they depend on the state to pay for whatever expenses are incurred for burials of people who died penniless, indigent or who passed away while imprisoned. In several cases some funeral homes are reportedly owed millions-of-dollars each.
