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.
