Funeral Planning Program

There is a lot of confusion amongst veterans regarding their VA Burial benefits.

The government does an excellent job providing burial benefits if you use a VA national or state veterans cemetery. However, for the average veteran, there are very limited to no monetary benefits for the funeral or cremation service necessary to get you there. That is why the VFW works closely with Dignity Memorial to provide funeral and cremation benefits for members that complement their VA burial benefits.

The Dignity Memorial® Network is the largest network of funeral, cremation and cemetery providers in North America.

As a VFW member, you and your spouse will receive special savings and access to valuable family support benefits that can help reduce the emotional and financial burdens often associated with the loss of a loved one.

Visit with a Dignity Memorial Funeral Planning Advisor to learn about this valuable program and ensure you receive all the benefits you earned as a veteran discharged as anything other than dishonorable. Also ask for your free Personal Planning Guide that will help you get started on making your personalized funeral or cremation arrangements.
