What are my burial benefits?
Veterans discharged from active duty under conditions other than dishonorable and service members who die while on active duty, as well as spouses and dependent children of veterans and active duty service members, may be eligible.
The veteran does not have to pre-decease a spouse or dependent child for them to be eligible.

Headstones and Markers - Flat markers are available in bronze, granite or marble.

Inscription: Headstones and markers must be inscribed with the name of the deceased, branch of service, and year of birth and death. They also may be inscribed with other markings, including an authorized emblem of belief and, space permitting, additional text including military rank; war service such as “World War II;” complete dates of birth and death; military awards; military organizations; civilian or veteran affiliations; and words of endearment.

Burial Flags -
VA will furnish a U.S. burial flag for memorialization of:
1. Veterans who served during wartime or after Jan. 31, 1955.
2. Veterans who were entitled to retired pay for service in the reserves, or would have been entitled if over age 60.
3. Members or former members of the Selected Reserve who served their initial obligation, or were discharged for a disability incurred or aggravated in line of duty, or died while a member of the Selected Reserve.

Military Funeral Honors -
Upon request, the Department of Defense (DoD) will provide military funeral honors consisting of folding and presentation of the United States flag and the playing of Taps.

Reimbursement of Burial Expenses -
VA will pay a burial allowance up to $2,000 if the veteran’s death is service-connected.
There is no time limit for filing reimbursement claims in service-connected death cases.
In non service-connected death cases, claims must be filed within two years after burial or cremation and may be eligible for up to $300 funeral allowance.
