The spouse/divorced spouse benefit is offset if he or she receives a government pension
based on his or her earnings in non-covered work and no exceptions apply.
Independently entitled divorced spouses are subject to GPO. The exception to GPO which
requires one-half support may be applicable. The only applicable point for meeting
the support requirement is at the beginning of a period of disability. When the worker
is not alleged to be disabled, the divorced spouse cannot meet the one-half support
requirement and may, therefore, be subject to GPO. See GN 02608.104.
