Social Security & Veterans Benefits

How Do I Go About Filing For and Notifying Social Security and the Veterans Administration?

Dokken-Nelson files the appropriate paperwork for the Death Certificate, official notification to Social Security Administration, Gallatin County permit, Veterans Administration, and for life insurance benefits.

Social Security

Dokken-Nelson will file the notification to the Social Security Administration.  However, families will need to meet with them to determine benefits.

Veterans Benefits

To process Veterans Benefits you will need to provide a copy of the decedent's DD-214 discharge document.

For each honorably discharged veteran, all Montana counties provide:

  1. Death benefits of up to $500
  2. Military honors
  3. An American flag
  4. A headstone if buried in a cemetery
  5. A free plot for decedent and spouse if buried in a state* or national veterans cemetery

          *NOTE:  The closest state cemetery is Fort Harrison in Helena, MT.

Your loved one may also be eligible for Federal VA benefits.
