Hello and welcome.
My name isXXXXX am a Licensed practicing attorney and my goal is to provide you with excellent service today.

This is possible under the law however the law states the following:

1. If the remarriage happened before you reached age 60, you cannot apply

2. If the second marriage ended in a death or divorce, you can file for a widows benefit from the first deceased spouse.

3. Your marriage occurred after age 50 and you were entitled to benefits as a disabled widow(er) or disabled surviving divorced spouse.
