Cremation benefits for Veterans.

United States Veterans are entitled to be buried or have their Cremated remains interred in any National Cemetery free of charge. The Veterans Administration operates 125 national cemeteries, of which 65 are open for new casketed interments and 21 are open to accept cremated remains only.

Burial options are limited to those available at a specific cemetery but may include in-ground casket, or interment of cremated remains in a columbarium, in ground or in a scatter garden. The government operates these programs and benefits are subject to change.

Our Cremationist Professionals can offer the latest information on Veterans cremation benefits (click here- for info@monarch) .

Veterans may also be eligible for the following benefits through the VA:

  • $300 reimbursement towards your cremation service
  • Free headstones or markers in granite, marble or bronze
  • Presidential Memorial Certificates
