what happens to the social security benefit if a 92 year old

This answer was rated:

what happens to the social security benefit if a 92 year old widow (receiving husband's benefit) remarries at this point?

R. Klein, EA :

Thank you for your SS question today.

R. Klein, EA :

The widow continues to receive her widow's benefit.

R. Klein, EA :

If, after a year of marriage, a benefit based on her new husband is greater, she gets that instead

R. Klein, EA :

But only ONE benefit, not both

Customer:

Is there any negative affect to her if she remarries?

R. Klein, EA :

nope

Customer:

thank you

R. Klein, EA :

only if she drops 30 years in age!

R. Klein, EA :

have a great day!

Customer:

have a good one!
