Schnider Funeral Home will be able to assist you in applying for the following VA benefits:
Many veterans receive a percent of disability upon their retirement. Depending on that percentage, the veteran would qualify for burial benefits. Normally, for a veteran who has 100% service connected disability, the benefit would be up to $2,000. For any veteran with less than 100% disability and receiving a disability pension, the benefits would be $300 for the burial plot allowance and a $300 for burial and funeral expenses.
If the veteran dies in a VA facility or a facility under contract by the VA, the VA will pay additional transportation charges to bring the veteran to his home town.
The VA will provide a U.S. flag for each qualified veteran.
If the body or cremains of a veteran are buried in a cemetery, a marker will be provided at no cost to the family. The mortician can assist the veteran's family with the style, type and information for the marker at the time of death.
County Veteran Benefits
Death benefits for veterans vary from County to County. Currently Cascade County provides a $250 death benefit for the family of a qualified veteran. Schnider Funeral Home can assist in applying to other counties for death benefits as well.
