As part of the services we provide to U.S. Veterans and their families, Rice Funeral Home will complete all of the necessary paperwork and make arrangements for the following benefits for which the veteran is entitled. If you cannot locate veteran paperwork such as the form DD-214 we may be able to obtain the information for you. If you are pre-planning funeral arrangements please contact us so we can obtain the needed paperwork in advance.
Massachusetts Veterans who are receiving assistance under M.G.L. Chapter 115 may be eligible for state funds of $4,000, provided that the total funeral expenses do not exceed $5,000. Rice Funeral Home will complete and submit state Form V.S.9 from The Commonwealth of Massachusetts Office of Commissioner of Veterans’ Services on behalf of the family of those veterans who qualify for and wish to apply for this benefit.
