The Truth About What Military Beneficiaries Pay for Their Health Care

Eliminate the Widows Tax (SBP-DIC Offset)

Military Pay and Benefits: Necessary to Recruit and Retain an All-Volunteer Force

MOAA's signature advocacy “Storming the Hill” effort brought more than 170 people to Washington, D.C., on April 10 to Storm the Hill on behalf of service members, veterans, survivors, and military families. And while the visits are over, the message remains: Legislators must work to ensure the military pay raise service members deserve, stabilize the TRICARE benefit, and put an end to the unfair widows tax.

MOAA members and others still can do their part by engaging with their representatives on these key issues. See the guide on www.moaa.org for details to continue the fight.

Here's some help with one of the methods mentioned on the website: Spreading the word by sharing MOAA's story. Check out the following videos and image galleries, and send your favorites to friends, fellow service members, and others in your social media network. While millions saw #MOAAStorms online April 10, more messaging only makes MOAA's voice stronger.

Objective of Visits to Congress Members

  1. Proposed 3.1 % pay raise for Active Duty Military to match the EIC index of this year
  2. Stabilize Tricare
  3. SNC/DIC Offset or Widows’ tax (removal of Offset)


Training for Storming

A three day Training session was organized by COL Terri Coles, head of Chapter Affairs National MOAA, and her staff.  The objectives and goals for the Storming visits were discussed and handouts/folders were given to present to each representative or senator.  Emphasis was made on talking about the above objectives in terms of retention and recruitment for members of the military – active and reserve.  For example Army recruitment numbers are down almost 7,000 this year.
