    My mother was receiving widow's benefits. She recently passed away. Is there nothing for burial expenses for the widow?

    My condolences to you.
    I know it's been some time since your post, but for others in your situation, I believe the widow is entitled to burial in a Veterans cemetery with a plot provided at no charge (but no help with funeral expenses). Social Security has a small burial benefit. To my knowledge, the VA will pay some burial expenses if the veteran died in a VA facility, but I am unsure about widows. Life insurance is separate from the pension to my knowlege.
