Dobson Family Funeral & Cremation Services is committed to providing families with the information and support they need to assist them during these very difficult times. It is our sincere desire to walk with each family and help them navigate the challenges after the loss of a loved one.

Veterans Benefits

We would like to thank all our veterans who served our country. We feel we owe them great gratitude. We consider it an honor to be able to assist Veterans and families of Veterans with burial benefits. We complete, and file all applications for such items as Markers, Flags, approval for burial in a VA cemetery, and reimbursement for funeral cost for eligible veterans from the VA. We also help in obtaining other memorial items such as Presidential Memorial Certificates, medallions, and military funeral honors. Our funeral home will assist families with veterans benefits even if we were not involved in the care of the veteran after they passed.

 The link below will provide detailed information on burial benefits, but we encourage anyone seeking more information to call us. We are glad to navigate this with you.

Social Security

We notify Social Security on behalf of the family. The standard benefits currently provided include the social security death benefit ($255.00) payable to a surviving spouse or dependent child. Dependent children would be entitled to survivor benefits. A surviving spouse would be entitled to receive their spouse’s benefit if it was higher than what they were receiving. 

The link below will provide detailed information on how to apply for these benefits and any eligibility requirements.

Life Insurance

Many Funeral Homes today use a third party to process life insurance claims. This comes with a fee ranging from 3% to 4% of the total cost of the arrangements. Dobson Family Funeral & Cremation Services believes a family should never pay more just because they choose to use life insurance. We process all Life insurance claims in-house and are glad to accept insurance with no additional cost to the family. With proper verification of the policy.

Send Flowers

Flowers convey heartfelt condolences, expressing sympathy and honoring the memory of the departed. By sending these beautiful arrangements, you provide a tangible expression of love and care, offering solace and a reminder that the bereaved are surrounded by support and compassion.

VA Burials

All VA burial benefits are handled at no additional cost. We do not have a charge for accepting life insurance assignments; we are glad to accept that as a form of payment with proper verification of policy.

Proudly Serving Arundel, Maine and Beyond.
