Who can be buried in a VA national cemetery?
Veterans, service members, spouses, and dependents may qualify for burial in a VA national cemetery, as well as other benefits, if they meet one of the requirements listed below.

What does burial in a VA national cemetery include?
When a Veteran, service member, or family member qualifies for burial in a VA national cemetery, they receive certain burial benefits at no cost to their family.
These burial benefits include:
A gravesite in any of our 138 national cemeteries with available space
Opening and closing of the grave
A burial liner provided by the government
Perpetual (ongoing) care of the gravesite
For burial in a national cemetery, you’ll receive an allowance for:
Burial and funeral costs
The plot (gravesite) or interment
Transporting the Veteran’s remains for burial

At the time of need, the person planning the burial can also request other VA memorial items as well as military funeral honors provided by the Department of Defense. These items and honors have other eligibility requirements.
