Requirements:

- Unit LOD Status Report

- Death Certificate

- LOD Proceedings

- Death Summary

- Medical Report/Abstract (for health-related death)

- Accident Report (for accident-related death)

 

Process:

Document requirements submitted by the Survivor NCO / Officer to PGAB are received. PGAB prepares a DF to OAJA to determine Line of Duty Status. Once LOD Status is declared, OA-1 grants approval. OA-1’s LOD approval will be attached with the DF to OAJA as support documentation for declaring beneficiaries. Publication of LOD Orders will follow. The turnaround time is approximately a least 5 days.
