Survivor Benefits

The primary survivor benefit applicable to survivors of retirees (and, in some situations, active duty members) is the Uniformed Services Survivor Benefit Plan (SBP). The Reserves have a related plan called the Reserve Component Survivor Benefit Plan (RC-SBP). These are voluntary programs to ensure survivors continue to receive income throughout their lifetimes. To learn more select SBP from the choices appearing above or press here.

Dependency and Indemnity Compensation (DIC) is provided by the Department of Veterans Affairs under special circumstances. For more information on this program and others offered by the Departments of Veterans Affairs, see their website for more details. Social Security also provides survivor and retirement benefits, consult their website for more details.
