There is no age requirement. However, if the marriage lasted less than 10 years and
no child was born, the benefit may be limited to 30 months if the widow(er) was under
age 35 at the time of the worker’s death or the deceased was over age 65 (men) or
age 60 (women) at the time of the marriage. Remarriage terminates the benefit but
a one-time payment equal to 35 monthly payments is made if the widow(er)’s benefit
was not subject to the 30-month time limit.
