Unfortunately marriage can have a negative impact on benefits;
the marriage itself affects eligibility if the spouse's income/assets are above the threshhold; but I believe the question relates to the monthly payout of benefits-please note that per the following chart, the marital rate is quite lower than the individual rate -
$1103 for an eligible couple
For an eligible individual it is $735;
Per the state's advisory:
Benefits for a married couple, both of whom receive SSI and have no other income, amount to 25 percent less than the total they would receive if they were living together but not as husband and wife
The medical insurance coverage will depend what plan they are under:
If they are received a subsidy through the ACA, that is based on income and the subsidy can be reduced. (that looks at size of household and total income).
