My name is ***** ***** I will be helping you today. Thank you for your question and for using justanswer.com.

SSA does not penalize you if you remarry at age 60 or later and you do not lose your survivor benefit if you remarry at that time. So if you are 60 and you have a SS survivor benefit, you will not lose it if you remarry. So no, you will not lose your benefit.

See SSA link for confirmation: https://www.ssa.gov/policy/docs/workingpapers/wp89.html
