I realize you have a question about social security. My goal is to provide you with excellent service, and help you better understand your options.
Hello, Terry. I'm sorry to hear about the death of your wife
Unfortunately, what you were told is true - if you remarry prior to the age of 60, you cannot draw a survivor benefit.
If your marriage later ends, then you would be eligible for the survivor benefit. As you are married now, you are not.
I'm truly sorry if you expected otherwise.
Is there anything else that I can assist you with today?
Okay if you would, please take a moment to rate my response as "excellent" so that I may receive credit for assisting you today
