Q & A
I am about to get married, and I currently receive Supplemental Security Income. Will getting married affect my payments?
Answer: Yes, getting married can change your SSI benefits, and you need to report it. If you marry, your spouse’s income and resources may change your SSI benefit. If you and your spouse both get SSI, your benefit amount will change from an individual rate to a couple’s rate. Although getting married won’t usually affect your Social Security disability or retirement benefits, that is not the case if you receive SSI payments.
