§ 3.1602 Special conditions governing payments.
(a) Two or more persons expended funds. If two or more persons have paid from their personal funds toward the burial, funeral, plot, interment and transportation expenses, the burial and plot or interment allowance will be divided among such persons in accordance with the proportionate share paid by each, unless waiver is executed in favor of one of such persons by the other person or persons involved. The person in whose favor payment is waived will not be allowed a sum greater than that which was paid by such person. (See § 3.1601(a)(3).)
(b) Person who performed services. A person who performed burial, funeral, and transportation services or furnished the burial plot will have priority over claims of persons whose personal funds were expended.
(c) Partial payment. Where partial payment of the expenses of the burial, funeral and transportation of the body are made from funds of the veteran's estate and the balance from the personal funds of another person, the claim of the other person has priority.
(d) Escheat. No payment of burial allowance or plot or interment allowance will be made where it would escheat.
