Veteran Benefits

  • We are proud to be a part of the Veterans & Family Memorial Care funeral home provider network, providing the best in care for those who served – and for those who love them. Veterans & Family Memorial Care Providers are experts in arranging, directing and coordinating all of the details surrounding the death of a veteran or veteran’s family member.

    The VA does not provide or pay for funeral or cremation arrangements or provide transportation or military honors.

    Free burial for veterans is available at all VA national cemeteries to any deceased veteran of wartime or peacetime service (other than training) who was discharged under conditions other than dishonorable.  

    The national cemeteries located nearest to Rockford are located in Rock Island and Joliet. Free burial is also available to an eligible veteran's spouse, minor child(ren) and, under certain conditions, to unmarried adult children.

    See the links below for more information on the VA Cemeteries in our service area.

    Members of the Reserve and the Army and Air National Guard who die while performing or as a result of performing active duty for training may also be eligible.
