Will getting married affect my son disability
It unfortunately could. I would need more information to give a better answer, however I will tell you that Social Security may count a portion of a stepparent’s income and resources if the child lives with both a parent and a stepparent.
If your son gets SSI disability, then that is a form of welfare. Thus, any increase in the resources or the income of the family unit could affect the receipt of those SSI benefits.
This response is meant to be information only and should not be considered to be legal advice. This information is not meant and should not be construed to be the formation of an attorney client relationship. I practice Virginia Workers compensation law and Social Security Disability law.
I must agree with the prior answers. Your spouse's income / assets will be used in the calculations to determine if your son will still qualify.
answers to questions are for general purposes only and do not establish an attorney-client relationship.
it depends on your son's age and the type of benefits he is getting paid. If he is a minor and gets SSI then you getting married and thus increasing the family income will affect his benefits.
