I am a widow and remarried at age 60. I am now being told I cannot claim survivors benefits cause I am now married. Is this true?
Not if you remarried on or after your 60th birthday. A marriage that occurs at or after age 60 does not bar eligibility for widow's benefits. However, if you're remarried and your current marriage took place before you reached age 60 then you couldn't qualify for widow's benefits on a former spouse's record as long as your current marriage continues.
