Rep. Schiff - Grieving Military Families Should Not Be Affected by Government Shutdown

Statement

By:
Date:
Location: Washington, DC

Today, Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Burbank) released the following statement announcing he would vote to reactivate halted payments to grieving families of fallen servicemen and women, who typically receive a $100,000 death gratuity, monetary reimbursement for funeral expenses and other expenses associated with the death of a loved one:

"It is yet another stain on this destructive shutdown that it has been allowed to affect grieving members of our military families who have lost loved ones -- this must not persist another minute. The families of those who have made the ultimate sacrifice in defense of our nation shouldn't have to wait for the mess in Washington to be over for help with burial expenses. These families must have immediate access to those benefits which they have earned at such tremendous cost."
