Additional Veteran Benefits

Funeral Services in Abesecon, NJ
In addition to coordinating military honors related to the service itself, Parsels Funeral Home can help you and your loved ones communicate with the US Department of Veterans (VA) to arrange for multiple benefits. We are happy to guide you through the process of obtaining these benefits. They include:

A Presidential Memorial Certificate

This certificate expresses the nation’s recognition of the veteran’s service. The veteran’s name is inscribed, and the certificate bears the signature of the president. These certificates are issued in the name of honorably discharged, deceased veterans.

Headstones or Markers

The VA provides headstones and markers for the graves of veterans anywhere in the world and eligible dependents of veterans buried in national, state, veteran, or military hospitals.

Memorial Plots

If an eligible veteran’s remains are not available for burial, the VA will provide a plot and headstone or marker in a national cemetery to memorialize the veteran. If you and your loved ones wish to place the memorial in a cemetery other than a national cemetery, the VA will provide the headstone or marker. However, they will not provide a plot.

Burial in a VA National Cemetery

The VA provides additional benefits in delivering a gravesite, opening and closing the grave, a grave box, and perpetual care.

Headstones or Markers

For more information on eligibility and the different levels of potential reimbursement, please review the guide to VA Burial Allowances.

Ash Scattering Services

Cremation services in Absecon, NJ

When families choose cremation for a loved one, the next decision that must be made is what will be done with the remains. Some choose to keep the cremated remains in their home, while others place them in a columbarium niche at a local cemetery. The last option is to scatter the ashes in a meaningful location.

If you and your loved ones plan on scattering the deceased’s ashes, the staff at Parsels Funeral Home have some recommendations. These tips include but are not limited to:

  • Receive written permission from the owner if you plan to scatter the ashes on private property.
  • Public parks require that you obtain a scattering permit.
  • The Clean Water Act governs scattering ashes in inland waters, so it’s crucial to obtain a permit from the agency that oversees waterways.
  • For ash scattering done at sea, the Environmental Protection Agency requires you notify the regional office in writing within 30 days after the event.
  • Ash scattering at sea must be done at a minimum of three nautical miles from the coastline.
