The payment made to a beneficiary (usually the ex-spouse or alternate payee) from a retirement plan after the plan participant dies.

Question: How do I know if the military Survivor Benefit Plan applies to me? See details please.? My Father recently passed away and my mother has already passed away a few years ago. I am an ony child. I'm unsure if my father had any type of life insurance and I already checked his banking statements. I need to figure this out before I lose out. I am over 18 (in my 30's). Can anyone familiar with the Military (SBP) Survivor Benefit Plan please help me? Thank you in advance
