My boy friend and I both collect social security and would like to get married. If we do, do I lose my social security benefit and we would only have one check coming in.

MyVirtualCPA :

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

MyVirtualCPA :

What kind of social security benefit do you both draw? Is it SSI, retirement, or disability?

Customer:

retirement

MyVirtualCPA :

Okay, in that case, you will still draw your full benefit. Nothing will change.
