Ask Social Security Questions and Get Answers ASAP
Hi. My name is ***** ***** I will be happy to help you.
Just to be clear on the language, you are not and you will not receive HIS benefits. You are receiving spousal benefits based on his records, your eligibility will not reduce or affect his benefits in any way. If he dies you will be entitled to widows benefits based on his records and because you did not apply before your full retirement age, your benefits will be 100% of benefits he will be receiving at the time of his death. If he has a new spouse she may also be eligible for her own widows benefits based on his records.
Marriage after age of 60 will NOT affect your benefits. You can remarry and keep your spousal benefits (or widows benefits if he happens to die in meantime). After you are married for 9 month you can check if you could collect benefits based on your new spouse's records.
I see you read my respond. Do you have any questions? Is there anything else I can help you with today?
