Woodlawn Funeral Home Can Help with Obtaining Veteran's Benefits
Your funeral director can assist you in making contact with the appropriate persons in order to file any Veteran benefit claims. Be sure to have a copy of your loved one's military discharge form (DD-214).
VA Application Process
It takes about 10 minutes to establish eligibility for burial in a VA national cemetery. At the time of need, families simply fax the DD-214 form or other discharge papers to 1-866-900-6417 and follow up with a phone call to 1-800-535-1117. Then, make arrangements with a funeral home or directly with a VA national cemetery. Although burial plots cannot be reserved, you can plan ahead by safeguarding military discharge papers.
