How to Fill out VA Form 21P-530A?
The state is responsible for submitting a monthly consolidated request for the plot or interment allowance for veterans buried in State Cemeteries on the VA 21P-530A. A manager of a VA center certifies the list for payment and gives a copy of the certified list to a Veterans Service representative. Center personnel must process a notice of death for each claim number on the certified list, and update the corporate record to show that the burial payment has been processed.
Filling out VA Form 21P-530A is relatively simple. It consists of a table and several boxes for certification.
- The top line of the form requires the name of the state, the location of the cemetery, the full name, and address of the recipient organization and the month, for which the claim is filed.
- The table should contain the name of each buried veteran, their VA file number, social security number, the branch of service, dates of service, dates of birth and death, and the date of burial.
- The state official responsible for applying for federal funds provides their title, signs, and dates the form on the bottom line of the form. The state official is required to certify that the listed veterans were buried in a State Veterans Cemetery free of charge and are entitled to burial benefits under the provisions of Title 38, U.S.C.
