Veterans now have a new tool to help ensure their loved ones receive the benefits to which they are entitled after their death. The Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) has created a new end-of-life planning section of their website that gives veterans and their family important information about benefits including life insurance, care preferences, survivor benefits, and memorial and burial benefits. There are even resources to help veterans plan ahead and ease the burden on loved ones during difficult times.
Visit the website today - https://www.va.gov/initiatives/end-of-life-benefits/. Consider how you might share this link with veterans and their families:
- Include the link on your funeral home’s website
- Share the link on your funeral home’s social media platforms
- Encourage veterans who may be planning in advance to visit the site
- Share the link with the surviving family of a veteran during a time of immediate need
