A retired Army member's former spouse requested review of her denied claim as beneficiary of her former husband's Survivor Benefit Plan (SBP). GAO held that the former spouse should be designated the SBP beneficiary, since the: (1) member elected SBP coverage for his former spouse pursuant to their divorce; and (2) election form contained all the required information.
