How will DoD distribute the special death gratuity?

DoD will distribute the $238,000 death gratuity as follows:

  • $88,000 in equal shares to the beneficiary or beneficiaries who were paid the original DoD death gratuity.
$150,000 to the beneficiary or beneficiaries who received the SGLI proceeds, in direct proportion to the shares they originally received. In the case where a member had no SGLI coverage, to the eligible beneficiary "by law."
