Thought for the Week...

 Often the difference between a successful person and a failure is not one has better abilities or ideas, but the courage that one has to bet on one’s ideas, to take a calculated risk and to act.  Andre Malraux

Survivor Benefits


Off-set Elimination

Phase Out of SBP DIC Offset

The Survivor Benefit Plan (SBP) provides eligible beneficiaries with a benefit called an annuity, a monthly payment for the beneficiary’s lifetime.  The amount of this benefit is typically 55 percent of the retiree’s retired pay at the cost of 6.5 percent of monthly retired pay.  SBP is paid by the Defense Finance and Accounting Service.

Dependency and Indemnity Compensation (DIC) is a benefit paid monthly to eligible survivors through the VA. To qualify for this benefit, you must be the spouse, child, or dependent parent of a veteran who died while serving on active military duty or as a result of a service-connected disability or who had a disability rating of totally disabled for a certain length of time before death. Guardmembers and reservists who were activated for federal military service and later separated are considered veterans.

The PDFs on this page contain recent information about the phased elimination of the off-set that had been in place for many years that MOAA and other organizations worked tirelessly to change.
