After three years, surviving spouses lose eligibility for the TRICARE Dental Program. They may purchase the TRICARE Retiree Dental Program only if their sponsor died while on active duty for more than 30 days. Surviving children can remain enrolled in TRICARE Dental Plan until they lose TRICARE eligibility for other reasons.
