- I am the second wife of a retiree, we were married and have 5 children below 21 yrs old. Am I and my 5 children entitled to the pension benefits of my deceased husband who also has first surviving spouse, but do not have children below 21yrs old?
- You are not entitled. Your marriage with the retiree is void. However, your 5 children who were acknowledged by the decedent are entitled, provided they were born while the decedent was still in the active service. The first wife or the surviving spouse and your 5 children will divide the pension pro rate or equally.
