Hello and welcome.
My name is***** am a Licensed practicing attorney and my goal is to provide you with excellent service today.
Remarriage at age 74, would not hurt your benefits, once married, you can also apply for spousal benefits from your current spouse, and if those are higher than your current benefits, they would pay them to you instead of your current benefits.

Let me clarify, marriage after age 60 will not hurt your own benefits in anyway, it will also enable you to obtain spousal benefits, and you would be entitled to widows benefits from your spouse if they pass away.
