Notice. AGENCY: ACTION: PO 00000 Frm 00106 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 As required under the final regulation published elsewhere in this issue of the Federal Register, the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) National Cemetery Administration (NCA) notifies interested parties of the maximum reimbursement amounts allowed for caskets and urns provided for interment in a VA national cemetery of the unclaimed remains of veterans with no known next-of-kin where sufficient financial resources are unavailable for the furnishing of a casket or urn for burial. DATES: Maximum reimbursement rates in this notice are applicable for claims received in calendar year 2015 for burial receptacles purchased for interment of deceased eligible veterans in VA national cemeteries. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Tamula Jones, Budget Operations and Field Support Division, National Cemetery Administration, Department of Veterans Affairs, 810 Vermont Avenue NW., Washington, DC 20420. Telephone: 202–461–6688 (this is not a toll-free number). SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Section 2306(f) of title 38, U.S.C., authorizes the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) National Cemetery Administration (NCA) to furnish a casket or urn for interment in a VA national cemetery of the unclaimed remains of veterans for whom VA cannot identify a next of kin and determines that sufficient financial resources for the furnishing of a casket or urn for burial are not available. In another portion of this Federal Register, VA publishes the final rule for 38 CFR 38.628, implementing this authority by providing reimbursement for the purchase of a burial receptacle for an eligible veteran whose death occurs after January 10, 2014, subject to a maximum reimbursement limit, which is based on the average cost of a casket or urn meeting certain specifications available for purchase during the fiscal year preceding the calendar year of the date an application is received. This notice provides the maximum reimbursement rate for applications received in calendar year 2015. Throughout 2014, VA advised individuals who intended to seek reimbursement for the purchase of caskets or urns to hold their receipts until the publication of the final rule. Because publication of the final rule was delayed, and these individuals could not submit those claims in calendar year 2014, VA has determined that the current maximum rates should apply. We will continue to use the calculation for reimbursement rates as SUMMARY: [FR Doc. 2015–08404 Filed 4–10–15; 8:45 am] 19735 E:\FR\FM\13APN1.SGM 13APN1
