  3. 3.  The U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) has set up burial and plot-internment allowances as a way of partially reimbursing families for the expenses associated with the passing of an eligible veteran. Key eligibility requirements include an honorable military discharge and a situation in which reimbursement funds are not provided by the deceased’s employer or other government source.
  4. 4.  In addition, eligibility is contingent upon one of a number of thresholds being met, including death due to a service-related disability or the veteran receiving VA compensation or pension. The burial benefits application requires copies of the burial and funeral bills, as well as death certificate. Veteran’s Friend professionals assist clients in ensuring that eligibility requirements are met and applications are properly submitted.
