Return to Social Services main page

The Pokagon Band’s Burial Fund Code provides financial assistance with funeral and related expenses at the time of death for those that are covered by the Burial Fund. The Burial Fund provides a benefit amount of $10,000, of which up to $8,000 is provided for the funeral, up to $1,500 is provided for a monument, and $500 is provided for a funeral luncheon.

On January 11, 2016, Tribal Council approved changes to Section 9 of the Burial Fund Code (bolded), as identified in the document below. For more information, contact Social Services Director Mark Pompey at (269) 462-4277 or mark.pompey@pokagonband-nsn.gov.
