The benefits include: Free Grave Space for Veteran & Spouse, Free Cement Grave Liner, Free Opening & Closing, Memorial Headstone, U.S Flag and Presidential Memorial Certificate.
*HOWEVER the VA DOES NOT PROVIDE or PAY FOR the required final expenses incurred at the funeral home or for cremation arrangements. Therefore it is important and necessary to provide funding for these final expenses. It is one of the best ways to help your family during their difficult time of grief and loss. Right Now is the perfect time to take the first step towards protecting your family from the emotional & financial burden of your final arrangements while ensuring that your wishes are fulfilled.
The VA Does Not Pay
For Funeral or Cremation Services
Traditional Burial or Mausoleum
If your choice is ground burial or mausoleum entombment, the service or gathering usually involves the casket being present. You can choose to have a viewing or a closed casket visitation followed by a funeral service in the funeral chapel or church. Gathering together before the interment or entombment to honor a loved one is the first step and the most essential component in helping hearts to heal. Think of all the things that should be remembered; your work and play, your interests & hobbies, your personality and above all the people that were part of your wonderful life.
Uniquely Personalized Cremation
Choosing cremation means there are countless options for creating a meaningful Remembrance Gathering which can be private for family members or a public reception. You may wish to have a service, ceremony or life celebration at the funeral home, place of worship or other venue before or after cremation. There are many choices when considering the final disposition of the cremated remains. The VBCS funeral home provider network offers a diverse selection of worthy vessels to choose from in many different themes & hobbies, as well as works of art that will be displayed & enjoyed for generations.
Because You've Earned It
Burial in a VA National Cemetery is available for honorably discharged Veterans, their spouses and dependents at no cost to the family and includes the gravesite, grave-liner, opening and closing of the grave, a headstone or marker, and perpetual care as part of a national shrine. The Veteran does not have to die before a spouse or dependent child for them to be eligible. For Veterans, benefits also include a burial flag and military funeral honors. Depending upon the cemetery, burial options may include in-ground casket, or interment of cremated remains in a columbarium, in ground or in a scatter garden.
