AFSA's Legislative Key Issues
The Air Force Sergeants Association has many key issues within legislation that we either fight strongly for, or in opposition of. This page will serve as a way for those interested to learn about the issues at hand, the background of the issue, and AFSA's position on the issue.
- SBP - DIC Offset: the law that reduces military Survivor Benefit Plan annuities by the amount of any survivor benefits payable under the VA Dependency and Indemnity Compensation program.
- Concurrent Receipt: the law that reduces military retirement pay, paid by the Department of Defense, by the amount of service-connected disability compensation received from the Department of Veterans Affairs, for those disabled military retirees whose disability rating is less than 50 percent.
