Converting RCSBP coverage from your former spouse to your current spouse
The open season explained above applies to Reserve Component Survivor Benefit Plan (RCSBP) coverage too. If your former spouse was your RCSBP beneficiary, and he or she died and you remarried before Nov. 25, 2015, you have until Nov. 24, 2016 to convert your RCSBP coverage to your current spouse. If you were not married when your former spouse died, you have one year from the date of your first remarriage to convert this coverage. If you are an active National Guard Soldier, send your request to convert your RCSBP coverage to your State HQs. If you are an Army Reserve Soldier or are in the Retired Reserve, send your request to convert your RCSBP coverage to Human Resources Command’s Reserve Retirements Branch.
