Details You Should Expect When Considering Funeral Benefits For Veterans

Veterans funeral benefits defray the costs of a lot more besides burials. The VA has a nice set of amenities and allowances to help make it easier for military families during this difficult time. The deceased veteran's family is able to make proper arrangements and give a decent burial to honor the death of a person who put country ahead of self.

Everything the government offers in this regard is divided into two parts. One deals with the costs associated with burials and funerals. The other one comes courtesy of the National Cemetery Administration, which provides gravesites in national cemeteries and cares for the upkeep.

The actual amount of reimbursement provided depends on the cause of death. If the death was not related to the veteran's service, then the VA provides two separate payments. One is a payment of up to $700 for expenses attributable to burials and funerals, and another $700 is offered as a plot-interment allowance if the burial plot is not in a national cemetery.

If the vet dies due to a service-related disability or injury, up to $2,000 may be offered for burial expenses. Note that in this case, there is only one payment. This payment doesn't have to include the burial plot within this cost, since that is arranged for separately by the National Cemetery Administration.

The National Cemetery Administration has 131 national cemeteries available. Any one may serve as the last resting place for a deceased veteran, who is also given a marker or headstone along with a burial flag. The families are given Presidential Memorial Certificates, and grave opening and closing along with perpetual care is provided to the family at no cost.

Veterans funeral benefits do not extend to spouses and dependents, who are only entitled to a grave in the same cemetery and provided perpetual care. Their names and dates of birth and death will be inscribed on the veteran's headstone. Dependents are provided graves even if they pass away before the veteran. However, graves cannot be reserved in advance.
