Hi and welcome to JA. I am Ray and will be the expert helping you today.
Thats correct except the waiting period after remarriage is only one year here.But the rest of this is accurate.
Here are two references to the one year requirement.
If survivors remarry before age 60, they lose their survivor benefits (unless they marry a widow or divorced spouse as explained above). But if they lose their survivor benefits, they may be eligible for a spousal benefit based on their new mate's earnings record once they have been married for one year.
After a year of marriage you would be eligible here for ht higher benefit.
I appreciate the chance to help you today.I wish you good luck with the marriage.Thanks again.
Second reference quoted from above..
Here is more about the spousal benefit which you were correct on, it would go up to the amount you state or close to it.
If you can leave a positive rating it is always sincerely ***** ***** again.
