How to apply
STATEMENT FROM THE LAST POST FUND REGARDING DISCOVERIES OF UNMARKED BURIALS AT INDIAN RESIDENTIAL SCHOOLS
To qualify for assistance under the Funeral and Burial Program, both service-related and financial eligibility criteria will be evaluated. Before approving assistance, the Last Post Fund will conduct a short interview with the Veteran’s next of kin, executor or other responsible person to establish eligibility. When contacting the Last Post Fund to apply for assistance, we recommend you have a Veteran’s military service record and financial information on hand to facilitate the application process. Please note there is a one-year time limit after the Veteran’s death to apply for assistance.
Apply Online: An Online Form may be used to supply preliminary information and initiate the application process. Once submitted, a Last Post Fund counsellor will contact you.
Apply by Phone: Our counsellors are available to answer your questions and to assist with the application process, Monday through Friday from 8 am to 4 pm EST. Toll Free 1-800-465-7113
