To prove the payment of all or any part of the burial expenses, you must either submit Railroad Retirement Board Form G-273a or an itemized, receipted statement or bill from the funeral director and other persons furnishing goods or services. The receipt must identify the deceased person, be signed by the funeral director or other person to whom payment was made and give all of the following information:
- Total amount of all burial expenses
- Name of each person who paid toward the burial expenses
- Amount and date of each payment
- Amount of unpaid burial expenses
If more than one funeral home is involved, proof of payment of burial expenses must be furnished by each one. If Form G-273a cannot be completed or an itemized bill cannot be given, contact the nearest field office of the RRB.
