Senate of Pennsylvania
Session of 2023 - 2024 Regular Session


Posted: January 17, 2024 03:19 PM
From: Senator Doug Mastriano
To: All Senate members
Subject: Notice of VA Burial Benefits for Veterans
In the near future, I plan to introduce legislation a Senate version of House Bill 325.

This legislation would require licensed funeral directors, funeral entities or cemetery companies to notify the county veterans affairs director of a deceased serviceperson having legal residence in the county and to notify the decedent’s family with the contact information for the county veterans affairs director.  This legislation is aimed at assisting the families of our deceased service personnel during their most difficult times by connecting to the county director, who will be able to guide them through any available benefits for deceased servicepersons and their families.
Please join me in supporting our Veterans with this initiative. 

Introduced as SB1139
