Government pays funeral expenses up to $2500.00 .
This benefit is connected to CPP and so it varies person to person.
Some folks have only received $100 and others up to $2500. Depends on individual CPP contributions.
"If you have contributed to the CPP for the necessary number of years, the CPP also offers a one-time lump-sum death benefit to your estate upon your death. Furthermore, your spouse or common-law partner may be eligible to receive a monthly survivor pension. Dependent children up to the age of 25 may also be eligible for benefits (those between 18 and 25 must be attending school full-time).
Applications for Canada Pension Plan benefits are available from any federal Service Canada office or on-line from the Service Canada website."
