Surviving spouse annuity


Q: I am the surviving spouse of a federal employee and have been receiving an annuity since the death of my husband in 1993. My question is whether my annuity will continue if I marry again. I am well over the age of 55. I cannot seem to find the answer to this on the official website.

A: Because you are age 55 or older, if you remarry your annuity will continue.
