    Audio by Bruce Moody 

    Military OneSource

    Learn the importance of service members completing their DD Form 93 and keeping it updated in case of injury, illness or if they go missing or die. And discover how it is used to designate beneficiaries who will receive their unpaid pay and allowances and other benefits — including the death gratuity, which is compensation for military service that allows survivors to meet their immediate financial needs.

    Host Bruce Moody speaks with Trevor Dean, program analyst with Casualty, Mortuary Affairs, and Military Funeral Honors, about the DD Form 93 and what service members and survivors should know.

    Visit Military OneSource at to take the MilLife Learning course, “Completing the DD93,” and learn about the death gratuity benefit and what it means to survivors.

    Bruce Moody is a public affairs specialist with the office of Military Community and Family Policy.
