    USAF Veterans Benefits Upgraded

    The Veterans’ Benefits Act of 2010 may not have added any significant new veterans benefits, but, it will increase some allowances and grants for disabled veterans and improve various veterans’ insurance options. Here is a quick look at some of the improvements included in the new law:

    Note: Most of these improvements will not go into effect until Oct. 1, 2011.

    Thanks for the update. Lots of good info here.

    I have to laugh at the $700.00 dollar for burial payment. Thats all they feel were worth these days. Better than nothing I suppose. I remember when it changed to $300.00. My Dad had passsed away and when I went to apply for it, they told me it had dropped from $500.00 to $300.00. Again, they make it seem like we are just another thing in thier way and they just wanna pass us off. Wonder who fought to get it to $700.00?

    Oh well,

    I will opt for the military burial at Riverside National. Free and prevents the survivors from paying for anything. Retiree's are free for all services I believe, even the funeral home.
