Can an executor reimburse a beneficiary for funeral costs?

Most wills have a provision providing for payment of funeral expenses out of the proceeds of the estate. Check the deceased's will to see if this indeed is the case.

As a side note, the expenses associated with the funeral are usually deductible expenses when filing the estate's inheritance tax return. Check with either an estate attorney or the register of wills (or Orphan's Court) of the county where the will was probated (or will be probated). You should be able to get the answers you need from the register of wills.

A court will need to lift the "freeze" order before funds can be removed from the attached account.

If the account does not belong to the deceased it is unlikely that a request for release will be granted unless the requester can provide documentation that there is no other means to obtain burial funds.


Can I sue someone for expenses paid for a funeral if I live in a different state?

Normally you have to sue someone in the particular location where a particular action happened. A funeral is another story. Normally a funeral comes out of the estate of the deceased. That happens before the estate is divided after the estate is probated. Normally the contract for payment for funeral expenses is signed at the morticians office before the funeral. That legal document would be the basis for your lawsuit. You can check with a local lawyer in your area, but you might need to go to the place where the contract for payment for the funeral was signed in order to sue someone.
