The Veteran (Small) Burial Allowance

You might be entitled to a VA burial allowance.

reimbursement of burial and funeral cost for eligible veterans

The U.S Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) gives you a partial reimbursement of burial and funeral cost for eligible veterans. When the cause of death is not service-related, the reimbursement is up to $2,000, depending on the time of service. The benefit is generally calculated as two payments:

(1) a burial and funeral expense allowance and
(2) a plot interment allowance.

You might be entitled to a VA burial allowance if 1) you paid for a veteran’s burial or funeral, 2) you have not been reimbursed by any other government agency or source, such as the deceased veteran’s employer, and 3) the veteran was discharged under conditions other than dishonorable.
