Pentagon to Raise Death Benefits: Plan Could Double, to $500,000, Pay for Combat Victims' Survivors
The Washington Post; subscription may be requiredLink to more items from this source
Feb. 1, 2005
Excerpt: Under pressure from Congress, the Pentagon yesterday announced plans to increase death payments by nearly $250,000 to families of U.S. troops killed in combat zones. The proposed rise, which defense officials are asking be made retroactive to October 2001 for relatives of U.S. troops killed in Iraq and Afghanistan, would effectively double, to $500,000, the cash that survivors can receive in immediate government payments and life insurance proceeds.
