Forest Lawn Funeral Home Beaumont Offers FREE Guide to Veteran’s Benefits

Many Southeast Texas veteran’s are unsure of their burial benefits.

Forest Lawn Funeral Home Beaumont is part of the Dignity Memorial Network, a team dedicated to honoring our Southeast Texas veterans.

As a SETX veteran, you may qualify for burial benefits through the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA), so it’s important to understand what your benefits are and how to request them.

Because Dignity Memorial and Forest Lawn Beaumont serve more veterans than any other funeral service provider, the funeral professionals at  Forest Lawn Funeral Home Beaumont have discovered that many Southeast Texas veterans don’t know all the facts when they or their families come in to plan their funeral services.

For example, a recent survey shows that 60 percent of Southeast Texas veterans mistakenly believe the VA pays funeral, cremation and cemetery expenses for all veterans. In truth, reimbursement of funeral or cremation expenses is limited, and certain restrictions apply.

Six out of ten Golden Triangle veterans also believe caskets are provided free of charge to all veterans. Actually, neither the VA nor the various branches of service provide a free casket for a deceased veteran unless death occurs while on active duty.
