SURVIVOR BENEFITS PLAN

 
Survivor Benefit Plan (SBP)

If an active duty member has a spouse and/or dependent children, they are automatically covered by the Survivor Benefit Plan (SBP) at the highest level at no cost to you. Prior to your retirement date, one-on-one counseling will be provided to make an election concerning the program. This includes medically retirements.  If you elect SBP coverage, you must pay premiums once you retire. SBP premiums are collected by reducing your retired pay, and they are not counted in your taxable income. This means less tax and less out-of-pocket cost for SBP. Also, the overall Plan is funded by the Government (subsidized), so the average premiums are well below cost.

 

If you elect SBP coverage, you must elect a level of coverage or “base amount”. The base amount is used to calculate both your cost and your survivor’s annuity. Full coverage means your gross retired pay is your base amount, but the base amount can be any dollar figure between your gross monthly retired pay, down to as little as $300. When retired pay gets a cost-of-living adjustment (COLA), so does the base amount, and as a result, so do the premiums and the annuity payable.

 

If you elect SBP coverage, you must also elect a category of beneficiary (ie., spouse only, child only, spouse and child, former spouse, former spouse and child, or insurable interest person). After retirement, your election cannot arbitrarily be changed.

PROCESS 1: PRE-SEPARATION COUNSELING


Pre-Separation Counseling will begin as soon as possible during the 24-month period preceding an anticipated retirement date but no later than 90 days before retirement. For reasons other than retirement, Pre-Separation Counseling will begin as soon as possible during the 12-month period preceding the anticipated date of separation but no later than 90 days before separation, retirement, or release from active duty. Public Law 101-510 requires that all separating/retiring personnel receive Pre-Separation counseling. During this counseling you will receive information regarding job search, relocation assistance, education, medical and VA benefits and much more. This class is a pre-requisite for the Transition Goals, Plans, and Success Workshop. Pre-separation Resources Sheet

PROCESS 3: CAPSTONE REVIEW


Capstone review is required for all separating/retiring personnel and should occur no later than 90 days prior to anticipated separation/retirement; however, if a member has less than 90 days left in the military, the member should attend as soon as possible within their remaining period of service. Capstone Review is the culminating activity to verify whether Service members have/have not met their Career Readiness Standards (CRS). The Capstone Review, in conjunction with the ITP, will be used by the TAP counselor and the commander (or commander’s designee) to verify status of CRS’s completion. The CRS’s are defined as a set of common and specific activities and associated relevant deliverables (documentation within the last 12 months) that must be achieved to demonstrate Service members are prepared to transition effectively and pursue their personal post-separation higher education, career technical training, or civilian employment goals.
