The Department of the Air Force is seeking input from survivors on how the Air and Space Force’s long-term support is meeting your needs. If you are eligible for the Air Force Families Forever (AFFF) program (see below for eligibility details), please consider taking the survey--even if you are not engaged with AFFF. AFFF started in 2010 with significant changes over the years, the latest in 2019. Your participation in the survey will help the Department of the Air Force better understand your needs and ensure that Air Force Families Forever fulfills its mission: To connect families of fallen Airmen and Guardians to their Air Force and Space Force Family, thereby promoting Survivor resilience and fostering well-being and connectedness. The responses you provide to this voluntary survey will remain confidential and be reported only in the aggregate.

Eligibility to take this survey:
The spouse, children, parents, and siblings of a deceased Airman or Guardian who died in an active duty, inactive duty for training, or annual training status are eligible to take this survey. The relationship must have been established prior to the Airman or Guardian’s death. Family members of Guard or Reserve Airmen who died in a duty status are eligible. Family members of veterans or retirees who passed away are not eligible.


The public reporting burden for this collection of information, 0701-AFFF, is estimated to average 25 minutes per response, including the time for reviewing instructions, searching existing data sources, gathering and maintaining the data needed, and completing and reviewing the collection of information.
