Can I be reimbursed for burial expenses?
Please review the Burial Allowance link at http://www.benefits.va.gov/BENEFITS/factsheets/burials/Burial.pdf for further information.
Some veterans may be eligible for the allowance which may cover cremation and other funeral expenses. 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.
