Decedent Affairs

Decedent affairs are coordinated for the Thirteenth Coast Guard District through the Personnel Services Division at Base Seattle. The Decedent Affairs Officer (DAO) is responsible for active duty, reserve, dependent and retiree deaths in the Thirteenth District. We assist the family in making funeral arrangements and help the next of kin obtain any compensation or entitlements they may be due.

Please contact the Thirteenth Coast Guard District DAO at (206) 391-0997 with any questions, feedback, or to request assistance upon the death of a member or dependent.

Refer to Personnel Service Center, Personnel Services Division, Field Support (PSC-PSD-FS), for additional information.
