Surviving Spouses AKO
Surviving Spouses are entitled to an Army Knowledge Online account. When a sponsor passes away, any of the associated sponsored accounts will remain valid for six months. Surviving Spouses may request their account be converted to a self sponsored account. All that is required is an email request sent to surviving.spouse@ us.army.mil with the following information: service member’s name, their relationship to the service member, and the last four digits of both social security numbers. Email requests can be done before or after the account expires. Spouses who never obtained an AKO account may do so by following the same procedures. For more information call 791- 2820.
