Resource Unit: The Resource Unit recovers money through establishment of property liens, accident liens, and estate claims. Funds are also recovered from bank accounts, unclaimed funds, trust funds, insurance policies, and other assets for deceased recipients.
Approval and authorization of indigent burial funds are also the responsibility of the Resource Unit. Funeral homes contact the resource department when they have a deceased individual that they believe had no funds to pay for burial or cremation costs. Each request is reviewed to determine if any funds/resources exist.
