    • When a widow, or a surviving ex-spouse, waits until age 60 or later to remarry, they preserve the right to collect Social Security benefits on their deceased spouse’s earnings record.

      Dear Melva,
      We received your questions regarding your Social Security. You are entitled to your ex-spouses Social Security if you were married for 10 years. The fact that he remarried has nothing to do with your benefits. If you remarry after age 60 years, it does not effect your spousal benefits. You will have to determine how and when you should collect on your ex-spouses benefits, they may be higher than your current monthly benefit.
