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. 
  • You pay your cost shares for covered services.

If you were using the TRICARE Dental Program when your sponsor died, you’re automatically transferred to the Survivor Benefit Plan. If not, you can enroll at any time. >>Go to Enrollment

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.

TRICARE Retiree Dental Program

You can enroll in the TRICARE Retiree Dental Program:

  • When your three-year period ends. 
  • If you don’t qualify for the TRICARE Dental Program Survivor Benefit
