Survivors of Retired National Guard/Reserve Members

If a retired National Guard or Reserve member dies, surviving family members may qualify for TRICARE benefits.

  • If the sponsor was covered by TRICARE Retired Reserve (TRR) at the time he or she passed away, then surviving family members may qualify to purchase TRR survivor coverage

If the sponsor was not covered by TRR, then surviving family members may purchase the TRICARE Retiree Dental Program for dental benefits and may qualify for other TRICARE health plan options beginning on the date the sponsor would have turned age 60.
