Retirement and Reserve Component Survivor Benefits (RC-SBP)
  • Upon receipt of your 20-Year Letter you have 90 days to elect Reserve Component Survivor Benefits (RC-SBP). RC-SBP allows retirement-eligible members to elect, at a cost of reduced retired pay during their lifetime, to provide up to 55% of their retired pay to an eligible survivor upon the member’s death.
  • If you do not make an election with 90 days, it will default to Option C. You do not have to accept this but will have to make the election to Option A in order to defer.
  • What you elect at the time of your 20-Year Letter will reflect retirement benefits at age 60.
  • You don’t start paying RC-SBP until age 60.
  • To check cost of RC-SBP, use one of the following links:
 Reduced Eligibility Age
