Casualty and Survivor Benefit Plan

The Casualty Assistance Representatives (CAR) provide prompt, accurate reporting, dignified and humane notification, and efficient, thorough, and compassionate assistance to the next of kin of active duty and retired personnel. They also assist retirees that experience a life event change that requires them to update/change their SBP election due to death of spouse or child, divorce, marriage, remarriage or birth.

 The Survivor Benefit Plan (SBP) is a government program, which makes it possible for retiring members to ensure that after their death, their eligible survivors receive a portion of their military retired pay in the form of monthly annuities and VA benefits. All active duty Air Force personnel retiring for years of service or disability must be briefed on their SBP options and attend a mandatory one-on-one briefing.  This briefing will establish your retired pay account and your SBP election (participate or decline coverage) with DFAS.  To schedule your SBP briefing, please call +1(301)677-6931 or +1(301)677-4989 or email
