Veterans should pre-enroll for burial benefits

Updates in the news are provided for interested veterans, retirees and active duty service members.
· VA burial benefits — pre-enrollment:

Since first announced in December, more than 10,000 eligible veterans have taken advantage of a new U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs benefit that allows them to pre-enroll for interment in a VA national cemetery, which means less paperwork that survivors will have to complete following their loved one’s death. Interested veterans can submit VA Form 40-10007, Application for Pre-Need Determination of Eligibility for Burial in a VA National Cemetery, and supporting documentation, such as a DD Form 214, if readily available, to the VA National Cemetery Scheduling Office by toll-free fax at 855-840-8299; email to; or by regular mail to the National Cemetery Scheduling Office, PO Box 510543, St. Louis, MO 63151.
