Pre-registration allows a veteran, spouse, and/or dependent child to establish eligibility for interment at one of the three state veteran's cemeteries. There is no cost for pre-registration and it does not obligate the veteran to be interred at the cemetery selected. Pre-registration is intended to establish eligibility and simplify the process for the veteran's next-of-kin at the time of death. A separate pre-registration is not necessary for dependents. Grave spaces are assigned at time of need, specific gravesites are not reserved.
The easiest and quickest way for a Veteran to pre-register at one of our three cemeteries located at Spooner, King, or Union Grove, is to use the MyWisVets benefits portal. Once you have registered and established an account on the MyWisVets portal you can select to pre-register with the cemetery of your choice and your pre-registration request will be automatically processed. Once your pre-registration request has been received and/or eligibility has been established a notice of confirmation regarding pre-registration will be sent to you by mail.
Utilizing the MyWisVets portal will also allow you to learn about and apply for many other benefits that you are available.
Alternatively, you may also print and complete the paper copy of thePre-Registration Application (WDVA 2111) and submit to the address/fax/email on the form. Ensure that you include the appropriate documentation of your military service – DD214, Wisconsin residency and if married, a copy of your marriage license or certificate. Utilizing the MyWisVets portal will allow you to upload and submit these documents electronically and is the fastest method for processing your request.
If you have any specific questions regarding this process please contact Veterans Benefits Resource Center at 1-800-WIS-VETS (947-8387).
