Survivor Benefits

The Defense Authorization bill includes a measure that requires the Department of Defense to establish a comprehensive policy on casualty assistance to survivors when a member of the Armed Forces dies while in military service. The bill requires the DoD to establish an integrated website to inform servicemembers and their survivors of the benefits they are entitled to. Earlier this year the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs launched a similar website, located here. Might be wise to point this out to your dependants.
