Stop, Look & Listen: Railroad Retirement Benefits Q&A

Answers are provided by Robert S. Kaufman

Remarriage After Rail Worker Dies

(Posted October 28, 2014)

Question 1204: I am 69 and receiving Railroad Retirement benefits, as is my wife. In the event of my death, what would happen to her benefit if she were to remarry?

Answer: Because she would be remarrying after age 60, she would be eligible for a Remarried Widow's Annuity. It would be less that her regular Widow's Annuity because it would not include a Tier 2 component.
