In order to be considered a surviving divorced spouse entitled to a Widow(er)'s annuity, you must:
- be finally divorced from the employee;
- have been married to the employee for a period of 120 months immediately before the date the final divorce became effective; and
- not be currently married, unless you remarried after age 60 (age 50 if you were previously entitled to a Disabled Surviving Divorced Spouse annuity before the marriage occurred).
If you have remarried since your divorce from the employee, and your remarriage(s) occurred before you attained age 60 (age 50 if you were previously entitled to a Disabled Surviving Divorced Spouse's annuity before the marriage(s) occurred), you must furnish proof that the later marriage(s) has terminated. Proof of divorce from the employee must also be submitted.
