Employment Law Questions? Ask an Employment Lawyer.
My name is***** and I will be helping you with your question today. This is for informational purposes only and does not establish an attorney client relationship.
Are you entitled to compensation from the government? No. Unless you meet criteria such a welfare or food stamps or other such social programs. Your husband could apply for social security disability (SSDI) if he has a permanent disability that keeps him out of work. This benefit would be based on his work history and you apply through social security. You could also apply for supplemental social security (SSI) but that has asset ($3000 for a married couple in qualified assets) limitations as well as income limitations. So there are several programs you or husbandcan apply for if you meet qualifications that might help.
Please let me know if you have any further questions and please positively rate my answer as it is the only way I will be compensated for my time by the site.
Just checking back in, did you have any further questions?
