Unlike an inheritance, final expenses are something none of us want to leave behind for a loved one. The goal is to share a gift — or legacy — rather than costs and expenses.
However, the government only pays a lump sum of $255 for those who qualify. What’s more, the Veterans Administration final expense benefit for non-service related death (if you qualify) is only $780 for a plot, plus a $300 burial allowance if not hospitalized by the VA at time of death, or a $780 burial allowance if hospitalized by the VA at time of death.
