CLOSELY RELATED TO THE DECEDENT IS CONSIDERED PRIMARY
NEXT-OF-KIN (NOK) FOR DISPOSITION OF REMAINS, DISPOSITION OF
PERSONAL EFFECTS, AND THE RELEASE OF RECORDS AND OTHER INFORMATION
TO SECONDARY NOK AND THIRD PARTIES.  AN UNREMARRIED SURVIVING SPOUSE

RECOGNIZED AS:
    A.  NATURAL AND ADOPTED CHILDREN IN ORDER OF SENIORITY.  ORDER
OF SENIORITY REFERS TO AGE (OLDEST TO YOUNGEST).  THE AGE OF
MAJORITY IS 18 YEARS.  MINOR CHILDREN ARE NOT ENTITLED TO MAKE
DISPOSITION OF REMAINS.
    B.  PARENTS IN ORDER OF SENIORITY, UNLESS LEGAL EXCLUSIVE (SOLE)
CUSTODY WAS GRANTED TO A PERSON BY REASON OF A COURT DECREE OR
STATUTORY PROVISION.
    C.  THE REMARRIED SURVIVING SPOUSE.  THE TERM REMARRIED
SURVIVING SPOUSE DOES NOT INCLUDE ONE WHO OBTAINED A DIVORCE FROM
THE DECEDENT (AT ANY TIME) OR WHO REMARRIED BEFORE A FINDING OF

MILITARY DEPARTMENT CONCERNED MAY BE DEEMED TO HAVE SUCH STANDING IF
NO OTHER SUCH PERSON IS AVAILABLE.
4.  INFORMATION PROVIDED FOR USE BY PSD/PSA.
    A.  DD FORM 93, RECORD OF EMERGENCY DATA IS CREATED AT THE
MILITARY ENTRANCE PROCESSING STATION WHEN A PERSON IS ENLISTED OR
INDUCTED INTO THE NAVY.  IT ALSO SERVES THE SAME PURPOSE AS NAVPERS
1070/602, PART II.
        (1) FOR MEMBERS WITH DEPENDENTS, THE DD FORM 93 WILL BE
REPLACED BY THE NAVPERS 1070/602 UPON ARRIVAL AT RECRUIT TRAINING;
OR, FOR THOSE MEMBERS NOT REQUIRED TO ATTEND RECRUIT TRAINING, UPON
ARRIVAL AT THEIR FIRST SHIP OR STATION FOR INDOCTRINATION, TRAINING,
OR DUTY.
        (2) FOR MEMBERS WITHOUT DEPENDENTS, THE DD FORM 93 MAY
REMAIN IN THE SERVICE RECORD IN LIEU OF THE NAVPERS 1070/602 UNTIL
MEMBERS REPORT TO FIRST PERMANENT DUTY STATION, UNLESS A CHANGE IS
REQUIRED TO UPDATE EMERGENCY DATA.  MEMBERS WHO MAINTAIN THE DD FORM
93 IN THEIR RECORDS SHALL ANNOTATE IN THE REMARKS PORTION OF THE
FORM, BLOCK 13, THE NAME, RELATIONSHIP, ADDRESS WITH ZIP CODE, AND
PHONE NUMBER OF THE PADD.  IF THE ADDRESS FOR THIS PERSON HAS BEEN
SHOWN IN A PRECEEDING BLOCK, IT IS UNNECESSARY TO REPEAT THE ADDRESS.

5.  SAILORS WHO HAVE WILLS THAT CONFLICT WITH THE PROCEDURES
LISTED ABOVE OR WHO WISH FURTHER CLARIFICATION, SHOULD BE DIRECTED
TO THE NEAREST NAVY LEGAL SERVICE OFFICE FOR GUIDANCE.
6.  COMMANDS SHOULD ALSO REVIEW SERVICEMEMBERS' GROUP LIFE INSURANCE
(SGLI) ELECTION FORMS DURING THIS PROCESS.  OF PARTICULAR CONCERN
ARE THOSE SAILORS WHO ELECT TO NAME MINOR CHILDREN AS BENEFICIARIES.
WHILE THIS TYPE OF ELECTION IS AUTHORIZED AND CLEARLY UNDERSTOOD,
THE SAILOR MUST BE ADVISED THAT LEGAL GUARDIANSHIP ISSUES TO COMPLY
WITH STATE LAWS MAY PREVENT PROMPT PAYMENT OF BENEFITS.  MEMBERS

18 YEARS OF AGE) ARE ADVISED TO SOLICIT ADVICE AND GUIDANCE FROM
THE NEAREST NAVY LEGAL SERVICE OFFICE.
