For Our Veteran Heroes:
As a veteran, I have had my own false assumptions and misconceptions about the actual VA benefits available to me ranging from healthcare to compensation. Let's be honest, there is a lot of information to digest. If you are like me, sometimes you just want someone you trust, to lay it out in simple terms. Give us 10 minutes and let us fill a few gaps we think are absolutely critical for your end of life planning needs.

What are my Veteran funeral benefits?
Does The VA Pay For My Funeral?
No. The VA does not pay for funeral arrangements or cremation directly. Any item or service obtained from a funeral home will be at the families' expense. Some Veterans' families may be entitled to a burial allowance, which may cover some of these expenses.
What Benefits Can I Rely On From The VA?
Benefits available include a gravesite in any of our national cemeteries with available space, opening and closing of the grave, perpetual care, a Government headstone or marker, a burial flag, and a Presidential Memorial Certificate, at no cost to the family.
Are My Funeral Costs Inflation Protected?
No. According to the NFDA, funerals double in price every 10 years. All funeral expenses necessary to facilitate your cremation or burial prior to arriving at a federal cemetery are going to be covered 100% by the veteran 's family at the current market cost.
What Solutions Are Affordable?
There are several insurance options available but they can be very expensive. We recommend America's Funeral Rate Lock Guarantee. Why? It is affordable, has short payment plans, inflation protected, portable and can be issued immediately with NO OUT OF POCKET COSTS TO LOVED ONES!!!
