Hello and welcome to the first DFAS Survivor SBP Newsletter of 2024! Spring is finally here and hopefully everyone is outside and enjoying the warm weather. I also hope everyone enjoyed the total eclipse on April 8th. Fun fact: Did you know that the next solar eclipse visible from the United States will happen in 2044?  
Now, we have great information about the Survivor Benefit Plan (SBP) in this newsletter. 
First, special information for Active Duty/Line of Duty annuitants about SBP spouse and child coverage.
Are you curious about what happens to your SBP account if you remarry?  We have an article that will provide you with the information you need. 
The school year is coming to an end, which means School Certification season is here. Child annuitants over age 18 will start receiving their annual school certification packets. We have an article with details about School Certifications and what you need to know. 
In this issue, we also provide an overview of annual verification requirements for annuitants. 
We have several tips in our “Did You Know” article.  
Make sure to save the date for the upcoming DoD Survivor Symposium on June 21, 2024.
Finally, if you don’t have the pay calendar handy, we include it in this issue. 
Thank you so much for taking the time to read our newsletter. We are working hard every day to provide the best customer service possible and that starts with keeping you informed.
