VA Makes Rule Change In Burial Benefits


VA Form 40-1007 Application for pre-need determination of eligibility for burial in VA National Cemetery
 

Veterans Affairs Department's rule change will allow veterans to apply for burial in national cemeteries before their death, rather than requiring family members to apply on their behalf after it.

Veteran memorial benefits previously were approved at the "time of need." That meant waiting until after the veteran died to apply for the benefits via fax or email by sending in a copy of the veteran's DD-214 or separation documents and then following up by phone.

The rule change instead allows veterans to be approved for burial in a VA national cemetery "pre-need," or before death, through a form submitted by fax, email or mail. The form can be filled out by the veteran or by someone else on his or her behalf.
