Both husband and wife are collecting SS benefits.
Husband dies so now wife collects his benefits but loses hers? His was higher.
Wife remarries and loses first husband benefit?.

Question is, does the wife now start collecting her original benefits?

Quick answer = Maybe.

Go to SSA webpage at Survivors Planner: How Much Would Your Benefit Be?

Scroll down to heading > If You Remarry

Age 60 is the key. And there is a 3rd possibility.
