  Will survivors benefits continue if I remarry?
  My two children and I have been receiving survivors benefits since my wife died. Will these benefits continue if I remarry?
  Your remarriage would have no effect on the benefits being paid to your children. If you get benefits only because you are caring for your children, your benefits would end at the time of your remarriage unless you marry someone who is receiving Social Security benefits.
