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

Answers are provided by Robert S. Kaufman

Marriage of Former Spouse

(Posted January 10, 2005)

Question 537: Can a former spouse get Railroad Retirement benefits if he or she remarries?

Answer: Divorced Spouse and Widows' benefits end with remarriage. They can resume if the subsequent marriage ends.

If the former spouse received a portion of the rail worker's Tier 2 as part of the divorce settlement, those payments would continue unless the settlement specifically provided that they end upon remarriage.

Note to readers of the column: I made an error when I posted Question 536. It's in the process of being corrected. The text will become available in the near future. I apologize for any inconvenience this has caused!
