Scott AFB Military & Family Readiness Center

Air Force Families Forever

Air Force Families Forever (AFFF) is a long-term survivor aftercare program established to provide support to family members of deceased Regular Air Force and Reserve Component Airmen who died in an Active Duty, Inactive Duty for Training (IDT), or Annual Training (AT) status and whose relationship was established prior to the Airman’s death. This includes Reg AF, Guard, and Reserve Airmen. Specific procedures have been devised to provide support to eligible Next-of-Kin (NOK) through Military & Family Readiness Centers (M&FRC's) at installations closest to where the survivor resides.

Next of Kin (NOK): widow or widower (remarried or not), each parent (mother, father, stepmother, stepfather, mother through adoption, father through adoption, foster parents who stood in loco parentis), each child (natural, step-children, adopted), and each sibling (brother, sister, half-brother, half-sister) of an Airman.

Each active-duty installation’s M&FRC is the point-of-contact for NOK to receive long term support, including: Information and Referral, Remembrance and Connection, and Installation Access.
