DD Form 1375 – Request for Payment of Funeral and/or Interment Expenses
DD Form 1375 – Request for Payment of Funeral and/or Interment Expenses is an application for reimbursement of funeral/interment expenses. It requires the claimant’s name, Social Security number (SSN), the claimant’s next-of-kin’s SSN, and information regarding the death of the claimant. The information requested by the form is used by the Department of Defense (DoD) to determine whether the claimant qualifies for benefits and if so, how much money should be paid. It is also used for claiming reimbursement for primary and secondary funeral expenses.
The Department of Defense (DoD) has submitted a proposal to the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) to collect information on the costs of funeral/interment services. It includes suggestions for reducing the burden of collecting the information and evaluating the information collected. A comment deadline of March 19, 2003, has been set. It is important to note that there is no penalty for failing to comply with a collection of information without a valid OMB control number. The public reporting burden is estimated to be about 10 minutes per response, which includes the search for existing data sources, gathering data, and reviewing instructions.
If the funeral/interment service was provided by a commercial agency, the MED 5360-3 letter report must be forwarded to the service that provided the service. The report outlines the number of funds cited and the costs for which funds were paid.
