Burial and Survivor Benefits for Veterans
The federal government offers many benefits to veterans and their families. These resources can help cover burial costs and provide financial help to their loved ones.
Preparing for the death of a loved one, or for your own, is not easy. To help, the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs has provided a list of resources that veterans and their families can use.
The VA's "Planning Your Legacy" document outlines these benefits, what they are, and how to apply for them.
