CBP Survivor Benefit Brochure

We extend to you and your family our deepest sympathies for the loss of your loved one.

We know how difficult it is to tend to routine matters and business arrangements during this time. We are available to provide any assistance you may need in managing the paperwork involved with your loved one’s federal employment, including completing the forms you have been provided to ensure that you receive the benefits to which you
may be entitled.

The benefits process can be complicated. For this reason, CBP’s Retirement and Benefits Advisory Services (RABAS) Branch will serve as your primary point of contact for survivor benefits. If you are identified as a beneficiary, you can expect to be contacted by a RABAS representative within 3-5 days following the death of your loved one.

This brochure provides a summary of the range of your possible benefits and entitlements, along with typical timelines for the payment of each.
