I have ALS, I receive ssi disability benefit's, and so do my kid's, who live with my x wife. She is about to remarry, will my kid's lose there benefit's when she does? Also when I die if she has remarried, will they no longer qualify?

MyVirtualCPA :

I realize you have a question about social security. My goal is to help you better understand your options.

MyVirtualCPA :

Do you have low income benefit or regular social security disability?

Customer:

regular

MyVirtualCPA :

If you have regular social security, your children's benefits will not be impacted by your ex wife's new marriage.

MyVirtualCPA :

Your children get the benefit no matter what - it's their entitlement

MyVirtualCPA :

Also, if you die and she has remarried, they will still get a benefit from you until age 18

MyVirtualCPA :

However, your ex wife would no longer be eligible for a widow's benefit - but, your children remain eligible

Customer:
