Ask Social Security Questions and Get Answers ASAP
Thank you for your question. Please permit me to assist you with your concerns.
If I may ask, in what state are you hoping to marry and reside in?
Ah, I was afraid of that. California is known as a 'community property' state when it comes to marriages and assets. As such, if you do marry, your income will figure into her eligibility. Ad yes, if her name goes on joint accounts, it will affect her ability to receive medication. As far as her medical eligibility, I would suggest contacting the agency directly, providing your income estimates, and having them run the numbers. Even if you create a prenup stating that neither of you are entitled to each other's assets, future assets are all marital so it may still affect eligibility.
