Although many people are not aware of it, automatic SBP spouse coverage became effective Sept. 10, 2001 under the National Defense Authorization Act of 2002. While on active duty, the government provides this protection at no cost to spouses. Before retiring from the Air Force, however, Airmen must decide whether or not to continue the SBP.
