SERVICE-CONNECTED DEATH BURIAL BENEFIT

A veteran who passes away from a service-connected disability is entitled to a burial allowance for the total cost of the funeral, burial and transportation or $2,000, whichever is less.

An additional separate amount is payable for transportation, if the veteran is buried in a National Cemetery. The additional amount is based on the place of death of the veteran to the nearest National Cemetery.

There is no limit for filing for the burial or transportation allowances due to the service-connected death.
