Can a member have more than one person listed as the beneficiary for the survivor benefit plan annuity (SBP)?

No. Only one person can be designated as the beneficiary for the survivor benefit plan annuity. Therefore, only one person can receive the entire survivor benefit plan. It is not possible to designate a former spouse as beneficiary for part of the survivor annuity and a new spouse as beneficiary for the remainder of the survivor annuity.
