To assist survivors in determining survivor benefits they should be receiving and for future financial planning, there are two types of online survivor benefits reports, an initial and an interactive.

The casualty assistance officer should provide the initial OSBR. This initial report is available online for six months for the eligible survivor to access.

The interactive OSBR displays all current and estimated future survivor benefits. The report also allows survivors to input “what if” type changes to family members’:

  • Education status and plans
  • Disability status
  • Marital status

This information is invaluable for a family’s financial planning. Eligible survivors of service members who died on active duty can access this report. It is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

These reports require a DS logon premium account and password. Survivors who do not have a DS logon premium account can visit the Defense Manpower Data Center’s website to create one. To receive assistance with recovering passwords or accessing reports, users can contact the Family Assistance Support Team by:
