Browsing: SURVIVOR BENEFITS

Q. As I understand it, when a retiree’s spouse dies, the retiree needs to notify the Office of Personnel Management. Is the increase in the retiree’s annuity effective at the time of that notice, or is it back-dated to the date of death?

Q. I retired from federal service in 2006 under the CSRS program. My first wife received half my pension until her death. In 2013 I remarried a federal retiree who is under the FERS program. If one of us pass first, will the survivor be eligible for any of our spouse’s pension?
