Navy Gold Star Advocate
The Navy’s Gold Star Advocate Program complies with current law and was established to provide assistance to the spouses and other dependents of service members, including the reserve component, who die on active duty. Our work includes:
· Providing support regarding casualty assistance or receipt of benefits authorized by law
· Addressing complaints regarding casualty assistance or receipt of benefits authorized by law
· Reporting the resolution of these complaints, including recommendations regarding the settlement of benefits claims, to the appropriate officials in the Department of Defense or Department of the Navy
The Gold Star Advocate Program is available to survivors at any point in the casualty assistance process. If you are a surviving Navy family member and would like to speak with a Navy Gold Star Advocate, please call (901) 874-0083.
