Hi, thank you for question. Please confirm if you are in England or Wales?
Thank you. In relation to state pension, you may be entitled based on his National Insurance contributions but only if you have not already built up a full basic state pension yourself. You can apply for his National Insurance record to be used instead of your own. If you are under state pension age when he dies you will lose this right if you remarry before you reach state pension age.
If he has contributed towards additional state pension, you may be able to inherit some of this too. You can read more guidance on additional state pension here: https://www.gov.uk/additional-state-pension/further-information

Thank you - the rules remain the same. As you are already in receipt of state pension yourself, you would not be entitled to "inherit" his basic state pension, however, if he has additional state pension (S2P/SERPS) that he has contributed to, then you may be able to inherit this.
