005: It's not a good thing when a surviving family member knows more about this than a seasoned spouse
By now, you may have learned a very important fact about your monthly retired pay that you can no longer unlearn. Jen Amos takes a moment from educating to have a heart-to-heart talk about what understanding the Survivor Benefit Plan and your military pension is all about: unlocking your inner confidence to choose how you'll manage your finances from here on out for post-military life. Jen recaps what we've learned thus far, shares her candid thoughts about the Survivor Benefit Plan, and gets honest with what it'll take should you be interested in protecting 100% of your military pension.
