SSI and marriage

September 7, 2012 by Guest

I am a 26 yr old female and my husband is 31 yrs old. He is currently receiving SSI but we have been married for a year and we have a child on the way (I am 5 months preg.) What can we do since he was disabled since he was 15 yrs old, and receives only SSI. I work retail and we are living in a hotel because we have no money to rent stable housing in South Carolina. Please email me if anyone knows any avenues or agencies to call. my email is clowneytl AT

Thank you for your time and consideration.

Qualifying for disability or SSI

September 11, 2012 by David Luhman

Yes, depending on your wife's condition she may qualify for either "normal" disability (SSDI) or Supplemental Security Income (SSI).

If possible, she'll want to qualify for SSDI, as SSI has limitations on family income and assets. SSI also has reporting requirements.

I'd recommend you contact the SSA directly for this, but the following may help.

You can use form SSA-3288 to release medical information about your case to others. You also might be able to use it to request your information for yourself :
