Yes, she can receive income, such as inherit, be gifted, etc. If she is working, such working income will be limited by the typical earnings limit. If she is considering working income, she should really have a thorough analysis of whether that effort could jeopardize the finding of disabled going forward. Also, marriage is largely off limits to her, as that would negate the dependency on you and cause a termination with very limited exceptions.
