I am 65 and have collected SS since I turned 62. My husband

I am 65 and have collected SS since I turned 62. My husband turns 66 (full retirement age) on 2/15/17 and would like to retire. Will I be able to collect off of him when he retires? Since I never had a high paying job my benefit is a very sad amount, and it would increase by more then double if I can collect off of his.

I am currently receiving SSDI and have been couple of years.

I am currently receiving SSDI and have been for a couple of years. I was told when I was approved that they would review my eligibility in 5 to 7 years. I am recovering from chemotherapy and radiation and also have an AIDS diagnosis. I am unable to keep regular hours for a job due to chronic diarrhea and incontinence. I was considering driving for Uber since I can work whatever hours I choose and start and end when I like. I don't want to go over the $810 Trial Work Period amount. In calculating my earnings for that purpose, what kind expenses can I deduct? Can I deduct lease payments or a portion of them since I will need to get a car? Can I deduct gas or repairs or a portion thereof? Can I deduct auto insurance or a portion thereof? I have not owned or driven a car since 1995 so I am going to have to lease or purchase a car. I was just approved for Uber's lease program, but I don't want to jump into anything without making sure I understand the possible consequences. I do not want to lose my SSDI benefits or more importantly my Medicare until I am able to return to work on a regular schedule.
