RS 00615.682 Family Benefits Where a Divorced Spouse or a Surviving Divorced Spouse is Entitled

POLICY

A divorced spouse (B6/BR), surviving divorced spouse (D6/DC), or disabled surviving divorced spouse (W6/WR) is never reduced for the maximum.

The benefits of other auxiliaries and survivors are reduced for the maximum, not taking into account the divorced beneficiary.

EXAMPLE: A surviving divorced mother (E1) and two children are entitled to $101.90 each, based on a PIA of $203.90 (Maximum $305.90). At age 60, E1 becomes entitled as D6 and is paid outside the maximum. The benefits payable are $145.70 ($203.90 reduced 60 months) to D6 and $152.90 to each child.
