Interviewer:  Becky, do veterans get any type of death benefits?

Becky:  Yes, veterans do qualify for two different types of death benefits.

If they want to be buried in a national cemetery, they can be buried there with benefits, and also, even if a family member privately pays for their funeral services, there can be a cash assistance and reimbursement for that, as well.

Depending on which way the veteran wants to have their last wishes, there are benefits for each way.
