My Father purchased policies from Trident for both him and my mom many, many years ago. My father passed away five years ago and Trident handled everything beautifully. My mom passed suddenly in April and I was left to take care of her body as she died at home and due to Covid-19, the coroner didn’t take her body because she died from natural causes. I didn’t even know at that point if Trident was still in business since the policy was purchased so long ago. I found their number from an internet search and they were great. They had her information immediately available to schedule the process right away. Two young men came within the hour and were nicely dressed, very sincere, and kind to the situation. I was impressed with how much care and respect they showed me and my mom as they took her away.
The next day, I received a call from Jose at the Laguna Woods office. He was also very kind and supportive. He walked me through the process and sent over appropriate paperwork with an explanation as to what exactly he needed. The whole process went very quickly and smoothly. Overall, very impressed with the professionalism and sympathy everyone at Trident showed during this very difficult time.
Veterans Cremation Benefits
What Every Veteran Should Know About Cremation Benefits
United States Veterans are entitled to be buried or have their ashes interred in any National Cemetery that has available space at no charge. Currently, the Veterans Administration operates 125 national cemeteries, of which 65 are open for new casketed interments and 21 are open to accept cremated remains only. Burial options are limited to those available at a specific cemetery but may include in-ground casket, or interment of cremated remains in a columbarium, in ground or in a scatter garden. The government runs these programs and benefits may change at any time.
