What Is Veteran Cremation?
Veteran cremation is a funeral service provided by the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) that honors the service and sacrifice of veterans who have passed away. The VA provides certain benefits for veterans, including funeral and burial benefits, to ensure that they receive dignified final arrangements.
Benefits of Veteran Cremation
The benefits of cremation services for veterans are numerous. One of the most significant is the incredible cost savings that the VA provides to eligible veterans and their families. The VA covers the cost of a cremation container, transportation, cremation, and interment in a national cemetery.
Another benefit of veteran cremation is the flexibility it provides for families. Cremated remains are much easier to transport and scatter, allowing for more personalized and meaningful services.
Requirements for Veteran Cremation
To be eligible for veteran cremation services, the veteran must have received an honorable discharge. Spouses and dependent children of eligible veterans may also be eligible for certain benefits through the VA.
Additionally, the veteran must have met a minimum active-duty service requirement, depending on when they served. For example, veterans who served before September 7, 1980, must have served for at least 90 days. Veterans who served after this date must have served for at least 24 consecutive months.
