008: What is the actual probability of receiving the SBP? (Case Study: O5 retiring at 20 years with the Survivor Benefit Plan)
Jen Amos returns with a two part series to answer the big question: What is the actual probability of receiving the SBP? She shares general reflections of producing the Spouse Benefit Plan thus far, addresses the client skepticism her US VetWealth colleagues receive when proposing private financial solutions, and explains where she first heard the "morbid talk." Then, she walks the listener through the SBP Probability Calculator to determine what is the actual probability that a retirees' spouse will receive the SBP.
