If that employee has nominated both wives, they will get equal share of benifits say 50% each after completing all the formalities and submitting the required documents.
If he has nominated only one then the entire benefit will go to her irrespective of elder or yonger.
Also children of both wives are eligible for the benefits till 21 years of their age.
Correct me if i am wrong.

For better clarity of situation please let me know the religious status of the employee. As if he is Hindu his first wife will be covered under the definition of family and will be eligible for all benefits not the second wife as the Hindu Family Law don't permit this.
Awaiting your reply,
