Death and funeral

 This section provides information on the types of assistance available following the death of an eligible veteran.

Funeral benefit is a one-off payment towards the funeral costs of an eligible veteran or dependent. Bereavement payments are non-taxable payments made after the death of a person who received certain eligible payments from the Department of Veterans' Affairs.
