Note: The NHSVC receives a plot allowance from the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) determined by the date of death for a veteran eligible based on NCA Directive 3210/1 and public law affecting the NCA according to the following dates:

  • Prior to June 18, 1973, there were no plot allowances
  • $150.00 if the Veterans death occurred between June 18, 1973, and November 30, 2001
  • $300.00 if death occurred between December 1, 2001, and September 30, 2011
  • $700 if the death occurred between October 1, 2011, and September 30, 2012
  • $722 if the death occurred after October 1, 2012
  • $734 if the death occurred after October 1, 2013
  • $745 if the death occurred after October 1, 2014

If the VA previously paid this plot allowance, the next of kin or authorized agent is required to make payment of same to the NHSVC. VA rules prohibit seeking plot allowance reimbursement if the veteran is charged a fee by a State. The VA does NOT pay plot allowance for Selected Reserve veterans.
