Military benefits for a veteran’s cremation include (eligibility dependent):
- arrangement of honors
- military service medallion
- service benefits
- reimbursement of cremation expenses
At Neptune Society, we are happy to help determine which benefits you are eligible for as part of your cremation pre-planning process. We make necessary calls and handle documentation as part of a veterans’s funeral service planning process.
Pre-need cremation services will often offer additional benefits for veteran cremation including a flag case, arrangement of honors, a military service medallion, and much more. The U.S. Department of Veteran Affairs also offers monetary recognition and service benefits to those who have served in the armed forces. This can include reimbursement for cremation service expenses when applied to retired veterans, disabled veterans due to a service-related injury, as well as veterans who may pass in a VA hospital or nursing home. This is one of the great aspects of preplanning. In many cases, family members won’t know to ask these questions or might not know the right information to ask the VA. By helping you prearrange, Neptune Society can guide you through all the government rules, regulations, and savings, ensuring you won’t miss a thing.
