Cluelessbride10:  I did some prelim research to see if I could help you out.  I am *assuming* he is receiving SSI due to disability, at the moment.  How that SSI was awarded, or the basis of which payment was occuring seems to be the biggest factor on if it will continue to stop.  Was it based upon his own work record, or that of his parents??  On top of that, rules vary from state to state.  

I guess if you are in doubt, and there seems to be many more questions and answers, contact your local social security office.  They will give you the correct info!!

Cluelessbride10:  Social Security Disability Income is most times usually not affected by marriage as long as long as he is the worker receiving benefits (he is not receiving the benefit through somebody else’s disability like an ex spouse or parent)

Regular Social Security Income is income based and once married you will definitely make too much as a couple to continue receiving the benefit.

You may want to speak with a CPA once you speak with the Social Security office. If he is relying on you to support him, this likely will have an impact on your tax filing status and your overall tax bill. Your taxes will probably go down, which may help lessen the impact of any decrease in SSI payments.

my brother was born with a disability and collects SSI.  he needs to “prove” he has this disability every year which boggles my mind.  but there is a lot of paperwork, and he is always getting letters.

the best thing to do is call the SSA office or go there in person.  expect this to be an all day thing or go VERY early, before they open and wait for the doors to open.
