Survivor Benefits Plan (SBP)
SBP gives survivors a lifetime, inflation-adjusted monthly income. Options and coverage differ for active duty personnel and retirees. Reservists whose service will make them eligible for retired pay at age 60 are eligible for the Reserve Component Survivor Benefit Plan, or RC-SBP
If you are on active duty, retirement-eligible and have a spouse and/or children, they are automatically protected under SBP at no cost to you while still on active duty. If divorced, your former spouse may be protected instead of a current one
