Survivor Benefits

The Survivor Benefit Plan (SBP) was established by Congress effective 21 Sep 72 (Public Law (PL) 92-425) to provide a monthly income to survivors of retired military personnel upon the member's death when retired pay stops. Survivors of members who die while on active duty and survivors of members recalled to active duty from retirement who die while on active duty are also protected by the SBP.
