SBP-DIC OFFSET ELIMINATION - Phase Three Begins with the February 1, 2023 Payment - Check Out Our New Quick Reference Guide!
Beginning on February 1, 2023, surviving spouses receive their full Survivor Benefit Plan (SBP) payment from DFAS and their full Dependency and Indemnity Compensation (DIC) payment from the VA. This is because February 1, 2023 is the first SBP annuity payday after the SBP-DIC Offset is fully eliminated. The Special Survivors Indemnity Allowance (SSIA) will no longer be paid. See our full range of FAQs on the SBP-DIC News webpage. *Note: the change in the law does NOT affect the amount of DIC you receive from the VA. You should continue to receive your normal DIC amount from the VA.
