Customer Question
I am drawing my...

I am drawing my late husbond's social security. While I am not planning to remarry at this time, how would my benefits change if I did?

Accountant's Assistant: These retirement benefits are supposed to help us but they can be so complicated! The Retirement Expert will help you get the most benefits propertly. Please tell me more, so we can help you best.

My husband died in May, 2009. I elected his benefits over mine. I was 67 at the time. Do you need socials at the time?

Accountant's Assistant: Is there anything else important you think the Retirement Accountant should know?

You need to direct me please.

If your widow or widower remarries after they reach age 60 (age 50 if disabled), the remarriage will not affect their eligibility for survivors benefits.

So far - your eligibility to receive social security benefits as a surviving spouse will NOT be affected.

Please do not post here any personal information.

Let me know if you need any clarification.
