Hi. My name is ***** ***** I will be happy to help you.

You, she may loose her SSI if your income and assets are over the SSI limits. Here in details what counts as resources/assets for SSI purposes: https://www.ssa.gov/ssi/text-resources-ussi.htm

If you get married her SSI will be calculated based on joint assets/income. Unless both of you qualify, she will lose her benefits.
