unmarried  children,  and  dependent  parents  of  those who die as a result of military service.   Payments are as follows: Compensation   for   the   spouse   is   paid   in monthly   rates   based   on   the   service   member’s paygrade. Payments   to   the   spouse   of   a   deceased member may be increased if the spouse is a patient in a   nursing   home   or   requires   the   regular   aid   and attendance  of  another  person.    Remarriage  makes  a spouse  ineligible,  but  the  spouse  may  reapply  for these benefits if the new marriage terminates. Compensation  for  children  under  18  depends on  the  presence  and  eligibility  of  their  surviving parent.    If  there  is  an  eligible  spouse,  as  indicated above, an additional payment for each child under 18 is authorized.  If there is no remaining eligible spouse because of death, divorce from the service   member, or  remarriage  after  the  service  member’s  death,  the compensation for children under 18 is paid at varying rates.    All  of  these  payments  are  in  addition  to  the benefits for which children under the age of 18 may be   eligible   under   Social   Security. Payment   of compensation  for  support  of  a  child  normally  stops when the child becomes 18. Refer to NAVMILPERSCOMINST   1750.2   for   specific entitlement. Compensation  for  children  over  18  may  be paid  when  a  child  is  incapable  of  self-support  by reason of physical or mental disability or until age 23 if a child is attending school and is not receiving War Orphans’  Assistance. Entitlement  in  this  category varies  in  accordance  with  the  condition  of  the  child and the status of the widow/widower. Compensation   for   a   dependent   parent   or parents  is  provided  on  a  sliding  scale  according  to other income. BURIAL RIGHTS The government provides reasonable allowances for  burial  of  deceased  service  members.    The  local chaplain  usually  helps  survivors  make  arrangements of this kind. TRANSPORTATION OF DEPENDENTS In  the  event  of  the  death  of  a  service  member, transportation   is   furnished   for   dependents   at government  expense  upon  application  by  the  senior dependent.     Dependents  may  receive  transportation from   their   place   of   residence   when   first   officially notified of the member’s death to the place they wish to make their home, subject to certain regulations. TRANSPORTATION OF PERSONAL PROPERTY The dependents of a deceased service member are entitled to movement of household goods from their place of residence at the time of the member’s death, or within 1 year, to the place they wish to make their home. SOCIAL SECURITY BENEFITS On 1 January 1957 members of the armed forces became eligible for benefits provided by the Old Age and Survivor Insurance (OASI) Program of the Social Security system on a permanent, contributory basis. This  contribution  will  increase  over  time  based  on applicable legislation. The  amount  of  Social  Security  benefits  paid  to survivors  depends  on  the  “average  monthly  wage” earned by the service member.  However, the Survivor Benefit Plan payments to survivors of retired military personnel   are   reduced   in   some   instances   by   the amount of Social Security received as a result of the deceased member’s military service. SURVIVOR BENEFIT PLAN Public   Law   92-425   established   the   Survivor Benefit   Plan   within   the   Uniformed   Services Retirement   System. The   Survivor   Benefit   Plan complements the survivor benefits of Social Security for   military   personnel   in   retirement. The   plan provides   all   retired   members   of   the   uniformed services, including Reservists who qualify for retired pay  at  age  60,  an  opportunity  to  leave  a  portion  of their retired pay to survivors at a reasonable cost.  All active-duty   personnel   who   reach   the   point   of retirement eligibility are covered by the plan without cost   for   as   long   as   they   remain   on   active   duty. NAVMILPERSCOMINST 1750.2 contains details of this program. LEGAL ASSISTANCE From  time  to  time  everyone  has  problems  that require the advice of a lawyer.   Since 1943 the Navy has  operated  a  legal  assistance  program  under  the supervision of the Judge Advocate General.  Through this   program   all   service   personnel   and   their dependents  are  able  to  seek  free  legal  advice  from 4-13
