Take Action Raise SSIA for Military Widows

Both House and Senate versions of the FY17 Defense Authorization Bill prevent the $310 monthly allowance (SSIA) for SBP-DIC widows from expiring.

But neither bill would continue previously intended increases in SSIA to make progress toward phasing out the SBP-DIC offset.

The big problem is money; it's very hard for the Armed Services Committee to identify more of the "mandatory spending" funds required to raise SSIA.

So we need to get senior House and Senate leaders involved to provide the kind of funds the Armed Services Committees can't come up with.

Please send the MOAA-suggested message to help push the leaders to do that.
