This is the kind of case we've handled for those with the need. The remarriage issue is tricky but not impossible to avoid. If you remarry you get only two-years of benefits in one lump sum. If we can help you avoid losing thousands of dollars in benefits call us and we will assist you in avoiding this two-year lump sum payment while maximizing your lump sum by thousands of dollars. If you have a similar case and would like me to help you, give Barbara a call, and let's talk. 515-222-1110 [email protected]
