The VA Does Not Pay For Veterans Cremation Services

Cremation-With-Care is the funeral home in Sarasota, FL that specializes in all veterans cremation and funeral benefits. Veterans burial benefits include a gravesite in any of the VA's 135 national cemeteries with available space, opening and closing of the grave, perpetual care, a Government headstone or marker, a burial flag, and a Presidential Memorial Certificate, at no cost to the family. Some Veterans may also be eligible for Burial Allowances.

Cremation-With-Care has been selected as the Sarasota and Sarasota County exclusive provider for Veterans & Family Memorial Care because we are known for having honest, reliable and affordable cremation prices for veterans in Sarasota, FL and their families. Every cremation is performed with dignity and respect in accordance with the highest level of cremation standards and procedures by a certified cremation specialist. The U.S. Dept. of Veterans Affairs does an excellent job providing veterans burial benefits if you use a VA National Cemetery for traditional burial or inurnment of cremated remains. However, the VA DOES NOT PROVIDE OR PAY FOR funeral or cremation arrangements or military honors.

*Cremated remains are buried or inurned in national cemeteries in the same manner and with the same honors as casketed remains.

Benefits available for spouses and dependents buried in a national cemetery include burial with the Veteran, perpetual care, and the spouse or dependents name and date of birth and death will be inscribed on the headstone, at no cost to the family. Eligible spouses and dependents may be buried, even if they predecease the Veteran.

The Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) National Cemetery Administration (NCA) Daily Burial Schedule allows the public to search for the committal service date, time, and cemetery for the scheduled burial of a Veteran, spouse, or other eligible family member.

Search for burial locations of veterans and their family members in VA National Cemeteries, state veterans cemeteries, various other military and Department of Interior cemeteries, and for veterans buried in private cemeteries when the grave is marked with a government grave marker.
