Veteran Administration Benefits

Reimbursement of Expenses

Arlington National CemeteryVA burial allowances are partial cash reimbursements of an eligible Veteran's burial and funeral costs. When the cause of death is not service related, the reimbursements are generally described as two payments:

  • a burial and funeral expense allowance
  • a plot or interment allowance

 

Who is Eligible?

To be eligible you must be a veteran discharged or separated from active duty under conditions other than dishonorable, and have completed the required period of service. U.S. Armed Forces members who die on active duty are also eligible, as are spouses and dependent children of eligible living and deceased veterans, and of current and deceased armed forces members.

How Do You Apply?

Call us. Veteran's benefits are not paid automatically. We will contact the Veterans Administration and apply for all benefits on the Veteran's behalf. Generally, all we need to begin the process is a copy of the Veteran's honorable discharge (DD-214).

How Much Does the VA Pay?

Service-Related Death
VA will pay up to $2,000 toward burial expenses for deaths on or after September 11, 2001. If the Veteran is buried in a VA national cemetery, some or all of the cost of transporting the deceased may be reimbursed.
Non-service-Related Death
For deaths on or after October 1, 2011, VA will pay up to $700 toward burial and funeral expenses (if hospitalized by VA at time of death), or $300 toward burial and funeral expenses (if not hospitalized by VA at time of death), and a $700 plot-interment allowance (if not buried in a national cemetery).

If the death happened while the Veteran was in a VA hospital or under VA contracted nursing home care, some or all of the costs for transporting the Veteran’s remains may be reimbursed.
