G2b How do Social Security Rules Affect an Individual's Decision to Remarry?

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Under the current Social Security rules, a widow/er can receive a social security benefit based on her/his spouse’s earnings if s/he does not remarry before the age of 60. Many widows and divorced women may choose not to remarry because of the eligibility requirement of the Social Security system. To analyze the remarrying decisions of widowed and divorced individuals, this paper will estimate a probit regression that examines the effects of social security spousal rules on the decision to remarry.
