My fiance and I want to get married. I recieve around seven hundred and forty dollars for SSI. He makes about three hundred and sixty dollars a week. Will my SSI payments become reduced if we marry and if they do how much will they be reduced by?

Effect of marriage on SSI benefits

April 14, 2010 by David Luhman

Marriage may have an impact on your SSI benefits.

See the following link which describes how income from a spouse may be "deemed" (attributed) to a spouse who is eligible for SSI :

Also see discussion on this page :

You may want to contact the SSA directly if you have questions about this.
