What if I remarry?

The impact of any remarriage will depend on the type of benefit. For benefits as a divorced former-spouse, benefits are not paid to the divorced individual once they remarry someone other than the ex-spouse, with some exceptions. For surviving former-spouse benefits, if the divorced individual remarries before age 60 they cannot receive benefits as a surviving spouse while married. If the divorced individual remarries after age 60 they will continue to receive benefits as a surviving spouse.
