So anything affecting SSI eligibility may have a ripple effect.
(For more information see at https://gov/apps10/poms.nsf/lnx/0500501150). Obviously, loss of SSI or Medicaid benefits can be devastating, life changing, and even life threatening to a person with disabilities.
The theory is that a couple can live on less income together than they would as individuals.
In addition, even if a couple doesn't get legally married, they can be considered to be "holding out" if they are presenting themselves as a couple by SSI definition; for them, the same rules apply as for a married couple and they will have their benefits reduced.
If I were to get married, I would not want to be a financial burden on my husband because I lost my Social Security.
Too many have to struggle with this choice because of "marriage penalties." SSI is a needs-based federal program that helps people with disabilities (as well as people who are elderly) who have little or no income.
And I don't want to have to be in the position where I have to choose between keeping my benefits or getting married.
People with disabilities should have the same rights as anyone else, and that should include marriage.
Beyond these marriage-related SSI benefit and asset restrictions, eligibility for SSI in most states means eligibility for Medicaid.
Medicaid covers services not covered by other health insurance plans such as a personal care aid, certain durable medical equipment, medications, and transportation to medical appointments.
