Will the VA help with with the burial of my father, a World War II vet ?
My dad was a World War II vet and was receiving health care benefits from the VA, including medical and prescription. Would this fall under compensation as far as an allowance with help with burial.
The VA is made up of different organizations. Your father was receiving Healthcare benefits. There is another benefit of $300 for burial expenses. It is possible to get additional compensation for final expenses, but difficult. Contact your local Veterans Service Officer (VSO) to get the proper forms to apply for these benefits.
