Hi and thanks for your question.


Unfortunately, yes, you could lose your ssi if you get married. I'm assuming that you are receiving ssi (supplemental security income) and not ssdi (social security disability insurance) benefits. If you are receiving ssdi, that would not be affected by marriage; but, ssi would be. In calculating ssi, ssa (social security administration) does consider all household income and assets, which would include the income of your new spouse.
