Nebraska Department of Veterans' Affairs

Eligibility Determination Request

This form is provided to help you and your family with the difficult decisions associated with choosing a final resting place. We will gladly keep your last wishes on file at the cemetery so your family members know your preferences for military honors, what you would like put on your headstone, etc.

Family situations and individual wishes change over time; submission of this request does not obligate the veteran or family to have interment services at the Nebraska Veterans Cemetery at Alliance.

Once your request and eligibility documents have been reviewed, you will receive a notice by mail, informing you of your current eligibility status for interments at the Nebraska Veterans Cemetery at Alliance.

Eligibility for interment is based on laws passed by Congress and incorporated into the United States Code at Title 38, Veterans Benefits - Sections 112, 2306, 2402, and 2411. These laws may change over time.

A cemetery representative will gladly provide assistance with questions you have about this form, eligibility, or cemetery services.

The Eligibility Determination Form is in pdf format; you can print for completion or fill in on the computer for print or electronic submission. Once completed, submit the form AND appropriate documentation by mail, in person to the Veterans Cemetery Administration Building, or by email to allen.pannell@nebraska.gov.

Please submit the following documentation with the Eligibility Determination Form:

  • copy of the veteran's discharge papers/DD Form 214
  • copy of a marriage license for the spouse
