Does the VA pay for cremation?

The VA does not directly provide cremation services, however please review the "Burial Allowance" information at:

Some veterans may be eligible for the allowance which may cover cremation. If you may be eligible for reimbursement, please contact a benefits counselor at the nearest VA regional office for assistance. The toll-free number is 1-800-827-1000.
