2160. Do burial spaces count as resources?

The value of burial spaces for you, your spouse, or for any member of your immediate family does not count as resources. This includes grave sites, vaults, crypts, caskets, mausoleums, urns, and other repositories traditionally used for the remains of a deceased person. It also includes headstones and grave markers.
