Dental Benefits for Survivors
TRICARE Dental Program Survivor Benefit Plan
If your sponsor died while serving on active duty, you may qualify for the TRICARE Dental Program Survivor Benefit Plan.
- We pay 100% of your monthly premium.

After three years, surviving spouses lose eligiblity for the TRICARE Dental Program but can purchase the TRICARE Retiree Dental Program. Surviving children can remain enrolled until they lose TRICARE eligibility for other reasons.

If you are a surviving spouse, you can enroll in the TRICARE Retiree Dental Program when your three-year period ends. The TRICARE Retiree Dental Program may also be available if you don’t qualify for the TRICARE Dental Program Survivor Benefit. >>Learn More
