I married my second wife long after I retired. Several years

This answer was rated:

I married my second wife long after I retired. Several years later I paid over $5,000. in back premiums and enrolled my second wife. Can I now drop her coverage without her consent?

Thank you for the information and your question. Unless you are between the 25th month through the 36th month of your retirement, you cannot terminate SBP coverage for your spouse unless she passes away, or you divorce and the court does not order you to continue SBP coverage.
