You will not lose your Social Security Disability. However, if you were getting SSI which is Welfare Disability my answer would be different.


The previous post is correct, however, you can also lose any DAC (Disabled adult child) benefits if you get married. DAC benefits are a much lesser known part of disability where you receive benefits based on another person's work record (parent or spouse). You also want to make sure your future spouse will not be affected you receiving benefits. For example, if you are receiving SSDI benefits and your future spouse receives only SSI benefits then your future spouse may have their benefits stopped.
