The National Cemetery Administration announced a new Pre-Need Eligibility Determination Program last December. The program can make things easy on your family when you pass away. VA burial benefits include burial in any open VA national cemetery, a grave liner, perpetual care of the gravesite, a headstone, a burial flag and a presidential memorial certificate. By getting all the details ironed out to smooth the process during a difficult time, you can find significant financial savings for your family. The eligibility requirements are available at the National Cemetery Administration website. After your death, your family will need to contact VA's National Cemetery scheduling office to request burial benefits.
