Veterans Cemetery Benefit Correction Act

(Sec. 2) This bill requires the Department of the Interior to provide outer burial receptacles for veterans' remains buried in a national cemetery administered by the National Park Service. (An outer burial receptacle is a container, such as a grave liner or a burial vault, that protects a casket in the ground and prevents the grave from sinking.)

Interior may provide reimbursement for outer burial receptacles other than grave liners but may require survivors to pay: (1) the costs by which such burial receptacle exceeds the costs of a grave liner, and (2) related administrative costs.
