In order to be considered a divorced mother/father entitled to a Mother's/Father's annuity, you must:
- be finally divorced from the employee; and
- be unmarried.
NOTE: If you are married to someone who is entitled to a retirement, survivor or disability annuity under the Railroad Retirement Act or Social Security Act, you may be able to receive a benefit, even though that marriage has not ended.
If you have remarried since your divorce from the employee, you must furnish proof that the later marriage(s) has terminated. Proof of divorce from the employee must also be submitted.
