Hi, thanks for your question. As you have reached state pension age, you will not lose your additional state pension which is based on your late husband's contributions. If you had remarried prior to reaching state pension age you will not have been entitled to the additional state pension. Please provide a positive rating if you found this information helpful. I will not be credited with answering this question without a positive rating. Thank you
