The Estate & Asset Protection Law Firm Owner, Shannon Pawley, Informs Veterans That Far Too Many Of Them Are Missing Out On Burial Entitlements.
Estate & Asset Protection Law Firm Owner, Shannon Pawley, brings to light an important burial benefit that far too many Veterans are either not aware of or are not taking advantage of.
DECATUR, GA, January 19, 2022: Shannon Pawley, Owner of The Estate & Asset Protection Law Firm, has posted a new blog on the law firm’s website entitled “Veteran Burial Entitlements Are Among The Most Infrequently Used Benefits.” Ms. Pawley encourages Veterans to access every benefit they are entitled to and deserve.
“Veterans who serve our country are entitled to many benefits and they deserve every single benefit they are entitled to,” Pawley writes. She continues, “However, one of the least used is the burial entitlement. I’m not sure if that is because the veterans and/or their spouses are not aware of this benefit. But the fact remains it is one of the least utilized benefit of all veteran’s benefits.” As Pawley points out, “In fact, in 2020 it was discovered that 58 percent of veterans did not receive any burial benefit. And all veterans, except those with dishonorable discharges are eligible. They are entitled to free burial in a national VA cemetery or a private one of their choosing. And, in most cases their spouses are eligible for burial next to the veteran at little or no cost.”
Pawley states, “When I work with veterans and/or their spouses to establish an estate and asset protection plan, I always make sure they are aware of and take advantage of this cost saving benefit.” She adds, “For certain benefits, such as burial in a VA national cemetery the paperwork can be done ahead of time for a pre-need determination of eligibility, so that everything runs smoothly without delay upon the Veteran’s passing.”
