Social Security Questions? Ask a Social Security Expert
Hi. My name is ***** ***** I will be happy to help you.
No, you will not loose your own benefit. But if part of your benefits is SSI (Supplemental security income - if you have very low income), you may lose that.
I see you read my respond. Do you have any questions? Is there anything else I can help you with today? Regular social security benefits are based on your lifetime earnings not on your current income so marrying somebody will not affect benefits based on your own records. On the other hand, if you were collecting spousal benefits (on your ex spouse's records) or widows benefits, you would loose the benefits if you marry somebody else.
