Will I Lose My Benefits And Medicare If I Remarry?

Jul 31 2019 - 11:05am

Hi Larry
I am concerned because I receive survivors benefits from my late husband benefits, who passed away 3 years ago and I want to remarry. I am disabled and I am 53 years old. Will I lose my benefits and if I remarry? I also receive medicare, will I lose that too?
Thank You

Hi,

Assuming that what you're receiving are disabled widow's benefits (DWB), then neither your DWB benefits nor your Medicare eligibility would be affected by a remarriage (https://www.ssa.gov/OP_Home/handbook/handbook.04/handbook-0409.html).

Best, Jerry
