Frequently Asked Questions

It is our mission to make the death care process as straightforward and as gentle as possible.

Can people who die from COVID-19 undergo human composting?

Yes, people who have died from COVID-19 can choose human composting. The heat created by the human composting process eliminates the COVID-19 virus. If you have a family member who has died of COVID-19, FEMA provides financial assistance for funeral expenses incurred after January 20, 2020 for deaths related to coronavirus (COVID-19) up to $9,000 per funeral. You can read full information on fema.gov. Recompose is a licensed funeral home and our services qualify for FEMA benefits. Our services team can assist you in compiling the information you will need to apply.
