Q: I am a surviving spouse who has been receiving SBP annuity payments and I want to remarry. What affect will the remarriage have on my annuity payment?

A: If you remarry before age 55, the SBP annuity stops the first of the month in which you remarry and coverage is suspended. If your subsequent marriage ends because of death, annulment or divorce, your annuity will be reinstated. If you remarry after age 55, the SBP annuity will continue to be paid. You should forward a copy of your marriage certificate to DFAS when a remarriage occurs.
