Here it is not great not too bad:
HOW MUCH DOES VA PAY?
For deaths on or after October 1, 2011, VA will pay up to $700.00
toward burial and funeral expenses (if hospitalized by VA at time of death), or $300 toward burial and
funeral expenses (if not hospitalized by VA at time of death), and a $700.00 plot-interment allowance
(if not buried in a national cemetery).
For deaths on or after December 1, 2001, but before October 1, 2011 VA will pay up to $300.00 toward burial and funeral expenses and a $300.00 plot-interment
allowance. The plot-interment allowance is $150.00 for deaths prior to December 1, 2001. If the
death happened while the Veteran was in a VA hospital or under VA contracted nursing home care,
some of all of the costs for transporting the Veteran’s remains may be reimbursed. An annual
increase in burial and plot allowances, for deaths occurring after October 1, 2011, begins in fiscal year
2013 based on the Consumer Price Index for the preceding 12-month period.
