Who is eligible?

Military members on active duty, Military retirees, members and former members of the Selected Reserve, eligible U.S. veterans of any war, other U.S. veterans who served at least one term of enlistment and separated under honorable conditions.

How are Social Security and Veterans’ benefits handled?

We automatically notify Social Security of your loved one’s death. Social Security pays a lump sum death benefit directly to the spouse. Veterans receive cash benefits based on disability or other requirements. We can assist you in notifying the VA.

How do I make advance arrangements?

Send a copy of your discharge papers (DD214) to keep in your permanent files. If you wish, call us and we can handle all details over the phone.

What are veterans honor services?

Retired Military
Military honors are available to all veterans regardless of rank or location of burial. If you are retired military with 20 years or more of service, we will call and request an active duty honor guard from your branch of service. The ceremony will consist of the flag folding ceremony and presentation to next of kin, rifle salute, and the playing of TAPS.

Honorably Discharged Veterans with less than 20 years
Typically these are veterans with incredible service histories. The ceremony will consist of flag folding, presentation and the playing of TAPS. Rifle Salute is not provide by the military.

What are options for Veteran cemeteries?

All veterans, their spouses, and possibly their children, are entitled to free cemetery spaces, grave opening/closing, grave liner, and memorialization. We can assist you with making the necessary arrangements with the National Cemetery of your choice. Please remember that arrangements with Arlington National Cemetery have additional eligibility requirements.
