Sadly, the military only offers a 55% survivor benefit, and as he also receives a monthly VA disability benefit which will end on his death, it's about a 75% loss in that income stream, plus SSA will go from 1.5x his benefit (with the two of us) to 1.0 as my half increases to his full amount. I tell him the insurance will keep me off the cat food.

Always ;-)
