Q & A

My same-sex partner and I recently married. Will we qualify for Social Security benefits?

 Answer: You may be eligible to apply for Social Security benefits. Many factors affect your eligibility for benefits, including how long you worked and your age.Social Security is now processing more claims in which entitlement or eligibility is affected by a same-sex relationship. It is wise to apply for benefits right away, even if you aren’t sure you’re eligible. Applying now will protect you against the loss of any potential benefits.
