I got a divorce from my husband who is currently on active

I got a divorce from my husband who is currently on active duty. We have three children. As part of the divorce, he is to have the children awarded 20% of his SGLI in the event that he dies while on active duty. He told me that if something happens to him, the children will not get any benefits until they turn 18. Is that a correct statement? I thought if something happened to him, the money would be released once a claim is filed.If it matters, he is currently stationed in Texas. The kids and I live in Maine.

This is somewhat of an embarrassing question. I'm currently serving in the military as a reservist and have intentions in getting married in the state of Washington to the same sex. Our families are aware and we aren't doing anything illegal. Does the military have to find out about the marriage? Or can it be kept a secret from them and keep it to ourselves? Will the army automatically find out about this marriage? Thank you in advance.

My question involves a terrible story. Earlier this week a family of three (servicemember, spouse, and child) were all killed in a car accident. What happens to the money from FSGLI since the servicemember also died? Does it revert to the beneficieries he listed on his SGLI (his parents in this case)? If so, is there any recourse for the family of the spouse especially given that they have to pay for her funeral?
