    Now that we've calculated Lt. Col. Rick Howard's Estimated Retired Pay, Jen Amos walks us through the Survivor Benefit Plan (SBP) Subsidy Program to calculate what could happen to him and his spouse should they keep the SBP. She also elaborates more on new terms: Today's Dollars, Future Dollars, and opportunity cost. To get the most out of this episode, be sure to follow along by viewing the High-3 Calculator and the SBP Subsidy Program.

    006: What's your Monthly Barrel of Wine worth? (Case Study: O5 retiring at 20 years)
    Jen Amos turns our winery analogy into real dollars by doing an in-depth walkthrough of calculating the Estimated Retired Pay for Lt. Colonel Rick Howard - an O5 retiring at 20 years with the High-3 Calculator. If you haven't written down your numbers yet, this is the perfect opportunity to calculate the following:
    Annual Retired Pay
    Monthly Retired Pay (i.e. your Monthly Barrel of Wine)
    Total Retirement Benefit (i.e. what your winery 'could' look like)
    Present Value (i.e. what your winery looks like 'today' and the lump sum amount civilians require in order to receive your Monthly Barrel of Wine)

    In the next episode, we will play out what happens to an O5 retiring at 20 years should they keep or opt out of the Survivor Benefit Plan.
    Additional Notes
    Lt. Colonel Rick Howard is a fictional name to protect the client's privacy
    "Today's Dollars" display what the projected benefits would be worth in today's dollars.
    "Cost of Living Adjustments (COLA)" - The High-3 Calculator uses future Military Retirement System COLA rates as projected by the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) for the immediate five calendar years. COLAs beyond the most immediate five years will use the DoD Board of Actuaries annual inflation assumption of 2.75 % per year.
    "Future Dollars" reflect the estimated amounts you can expect to receive or spend when you retire. These amounts include projected pay increases.

    By now, you may have learned a very important fact about your monthly retired pay that you can no longer unlearn.

    How important is it for you and your family to protect the military pension? Jen Amos recaps how the military pension is more than a retired monthly pay by reiterating the wine analogy. Remember to refer to the last episode to learn how to calculate your Estimated Retired Pay, Total Retirement Benefit, and Present Value. Jen continues to explain what these numbers mean and how they relate to understanding the Survivor Benefit Plan.
    Additional Notes:
    "Eligible Dependents" and "Beneficiaries" are synonymous, in the context of this recording. To learn more about who is eligible to receive the SBP, visit https://militarypay.defense.gov/Benefits/Survivor-Benefit-Program/Costs-and-Benefits/ (https://militarypay.defense.gov/Benefits/Survivor-Benefit-Program/Costs-and-Benefits/)
    The "Premium" (i.e. the 6.5 cups of wine taken from your 100 cups of monthly wine from your Monthly Barrel or Wine -- a.k.a. Monthly Retired Pay) is the automatic fee a retiree invests into the Survivor Benefit Plan. Right now, SBP "premiums" for spouse coverage are 6.5% of your chosen base amount.

    Jen Amos takes a detour from the Survivor Benefit Plan to talk about the most important thing it protects: your military pension. She explains the basics of the military pension, how to calculate your Estimated Retired Pay, and introduces financial terms: the "present value" and an "annuity." Lastly, she shares a clever way to respond the next time someone says, "Thank you for your service."

    Happy 2022! Jen Amos kicks off the new year with a commentary on her upcoming, yet-to-be-named book! She reads the transcript of the introduction, which talks about how she arrived to hosting The Spouse Benefit Plan, her background as a Gold Star family member, her award-winning podcast show Holding Down the Fort, why it's difficult to talk about the Survivor Benefit Plan, who this show is for and NOT for, and a hint to the next episode's topic.
