Can an employee have more than one person listed as the beneficiary for survivor annuities?

Yes. The employee may have a former spouse survivor annuity established for a former spouse and a survivor annuity in place for a current spouse. Under the CSRS the total of these survivor annuities cannot exceed 55% of the Employee’s gross monthly retirement benefit, and under FERS cannot exceed 50% of the Employee’s gross monthly retirement benefit.
