An Independent View of Social Security
SSI plus SS benefits
I am 62 years old and receive SSI. I was married for 31 years but have been divorced for 15. My ex husband says I can file for his SS benefits. Can I receive both SSI AND his SS benefits at the same time? I only receive $674 a month right now, plus $74 in food stamps and Medicaid. I dont want to lose my SSI or Medicaid benefits if I do file on his Social Security. Any information would be appreciated. I live in Texas.
