Understanding Eligibility

Eligible U.S. military veterans and servicemembers are entitled to many benefits for their service to this country. According to the eBook, those eligible include active and retired servicemembers of the Army, Navy, Air Force, Marine Corps, the Coast Guard and the National Guard or reserve servicemembers. Available benefits depend upon many considerations, including military unit service or service-related injuries.

In addition, Veteran Affairs (VA) and the Department of Defense (DOD) offer an extensive list of benefits for veterans. These include benefits for healthcare and education, home loan guarantees, pensions, compensation, aid and assistance programs, financial counseling, online will preparation services, grief counseling services, and more.

End-of-Life Benefits and Services

Veterans and service members also qualify for a memorial service, if requested. The military may provide a color guard, pallbearers, rifle detail, or even a military flyover. During a Funerals Honors ceremony, a minimum of two uniformed personnel must be present to present the burial flag to the family. Additional burial benefits to honor veterans include headstones, markers, Presidential Memorial Certifications, gravesite maintenance, and a guaranteed burial space in any of the 131 National Cemeteries.

The services and benefits a Veteran receives are also extended to his or her family. VA compensation and pension benefit programs include tax-free, monthly payments to surviving spouses, dependent children and dependent parents.  In addition, the VA provides financial resources to help eligible Veterans and their beneficiaries manage End-of-Life planning costs. This includes free, professional financial advice to beneficiaries, online will preparation services, and a fiduciary program.

Additional Resources

Passare’s “Understanding U.S. Veteran Benefits and Services” is a comprehensive resource of available benefits, resources dependent and survivor benefits, survivor pension benefits, and more. The eBook also includes a Frequently Asked Questions document with links and contact information, as well as specific instructions on how to apply for benefits and services.

Carr, Veterans Service Representative for the City and County of San Francisco and Passare Expert Panel Member. “The veteran benefits and services outlined in the Passare eBook assist our veterans and servicemembers in understanding what they have earned.
