Can VA confirm that the surviving same-sex spouse of a deceased Veteran, who is already interred in a VA national cemetery, will be eligible for interment with the Veteran?

VA determines eligibility for burial and memorial benefits at an individual's time of need. We recommend gathering and maintaining information that may be helpful to VA in determining eligibility for interment at the appropriate time. For more information, please refer to the NCA website and the fact sheet "Arranging Burial in a NationalCemetery."
