Congrats on thinking about getting married!
I have great news for you - marriage after the age of 60 does not impact your benefits
Therefore, you will be able to get married and draw the same benefit you are currently drawing.
The only time there are additional benefits is if 1/2 of one spouses benefit is greater than what that spouse is currently drawing. For example, if you are drawing $2,400 per month and your lady friend is drawing $750, 1/2 of your benefit is $1,200. She is eligible for that, so would draw $1,200 instead of $750
