Gregg Wenzel Clandestine Heroes Parity Act
This bill amends the Central Intelligence Agency Act of 1949 to revise the death benefit for officers or employees of the CIA who die as a result of injuries sustained outside of the United States and whose death resulted from hostile or terrorist activities or occurred in connection with an intelligence activity having a substantial element of risk. Specifically, this bill authorizes the death benefit to be paid to the next of kin if the employee or officer does not have a surviving dependent. This provision applies retroactively.
Additionally, this bill sets a minimum death benefit of $100,000.
