Hi everyone,


I have been on SSI since I was around 8 years old approximately and am now 33.

I was wondering- if I marry my fiancee, will I completely lose my SSI and Medicaid forever?

He works a day job, and is considered well off according to the govt charts, but in all seriousness he does not make much. He basically has been taking care of me since my check does not go far at all.

So he works for a non profit.

What I am wondering- if I marry him, will I lose SSI and Medicaid forver immediately?
Will I ever be able to get it back if he loses his job or if something bad happens?

Please inform me about anything associated with this topic.

My disability won't change. However, technically my financial situation will if I do marry.

I am BP, Personality Disorder, Anxiety/Panic, PTSD...


Thanks

Forever assumes you don't get divorced or outlive him.

He works a day job, and is considered well off according to the govt charts, but in all seriousness he does not make much.


The reality of his income is irrelevant. If it's above however much the government says is enough for two people to live on, you no longer get SSI.

What I am wondering- if I marry him, will I lose SSI and Medicaid forver immediately?
Will I ever be able to get it back if he loses his job or if something bad happens?


Immediately: more or less.
SSI: depends on how much he makes. It's not all or nothing. Medicaid: Is all or nothing, but the threshold is higher.
Forever: see above.
Get it back: Yes. That's one thing Social Security is good about, you can get back on their programs with relative ease and speed.

I can't find the "deemed income" (what family you live with makes) numbers on the SSI website, so I don't know what the exact figures are.
