Marriage stuff as Federal retiree

Marriage can include spouse on health insurance, and it is inheritable; marriage can confer SS and Medicare.
Marriage can confer pension inheritance, but requires large fees/interest from last ~10 years so not worth it.

I think it's in code for federal retirees only and will be destroyed in 10 seconds after you read it.

I believe this requires a survivor annuity for a spouse to continue the health insurance if the retiree passes.

Correct, and it can be a very tiny survivor benefit, as little as one or two percent I believe.
