The SDR has developed contingency plans to address potential sources of disruption in our work. Our intention is to continue to serve the needs of contract holders, funeral homes, stakeholders and guaranty associations while keeping our employees safe. The SDR's team does not expect any significant delays in responding to inquiries, processing claims or issuing payments due to spread of the COVID-19 virus at this time. We will continue to update this website should the situation change. Thank you for your patience and understanding.
