Customer Question

I married a married a marine widow. She is 62. We married in June 2015. Her marine husband passed in 2008 after retiring from 20+ years active duty. She has my health insurance and that is fine. However, she wants to know if she may keep her base privileges (ex, commisarry). She remarried after 55.

Unlike the SBP (which actually quits tracking marriage after age 55 for those benefits), the ID right is terminated at remarriage and not reinstated unless she later divorces, has the marriage annulled or becomes a widow from that subsequent marriage.

So no, right now, while she is married to you, she is not eligible for the ID card benefit.
