Sorry...I do not understand your question...are you asking if you can take out SBP in her name?
1. How long ago was the divorce?
2. How long ago was the retirement?
3. Did the divorce decree order your ex get your SBP?
Thank youOne more....you are currently paying for SBP now? Or are you "paid up"
But are you current? I mean, are they taking money from your check each month? Or, does your monthly retired statement indicate you are paid up?
A key question is whether you are paying for SBP or not.
IF you are not currently paying for SBP? Then you are "out of luck". SBP is insurance....and if you did not elect it at the time you retired, or did not sign up for it during one of the "open enrollment" periods? Then it is not possible for you to get SBP for anyone now.Period.Now...IF you are paying for SBP (or have "paid up"), then it MAY be possible to change your beneficiary.You could apply to change your beneficiary with this formhttp://www.dtic.mil/whs/directives/forms/eforms/dd2656-1.pdfPlease let me know if you have more questions.
