That really depends on which sort of benefits you are talking about. The Survivor's Benefit Plan would continue as long as you were not remarried prior to turning 55 years old. Once you are 55, you can remarry and retain those rights.
For a DIC (Dependency and Indemnity Compensation) payment, if your remarriage occurs after the age of 57 (so, 58) then you would retain the rights to payment of that benefit.
For a Survivor's Pension (different than the Survivor's Benefit plan), remarriage would invalidate the payment, regardless of your age.
For Tricare, if you remarry you lose that benefit.
