Survivor Benefits Information

Authored By: Office of the Secretary of Defense

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.
