Planning to get married, but fiance's primary residence is in Florida and mine is in New York City where my apartment is covered by SCRIE. Can we file separately and would I still be eligible for SCRIE if my financial situation hasn't changed?

In order to satisfy the income eligibility requirement, your household income must be $50,000 or less.

You must report income for yourself and for all members of your household, including all family members who lived in your apartment the year.

I know about the $50,000 etal that's in your response but you're not addressing my question in full. In wouldn't be accepted into SCRIE if I had over $50,000 in earned income which is only my social security of under $1,500/month.

If you're not sure how getting married, AND having different primary addresses AND filing separately effects my SCRIE
Tax Professional: Robin D., Senior Tax Advisor 4 replied 1 year ago

Your address can be different from your spouse's. That would not disqualify you.

Your new spouse, if they stayed in the residence with you (at all) then their income is also added to your income.

I can't speak on the phone now. Could we do that at a later dat and do live chat only now?
Tax Professional: Robin D., Senior Tax Advisor 4 replied 1 year ago

If you received an offer to speak on the phone that was site generated and not specifically sent from me.

His primary residence is in Florida where he'll be living approximately over 6 months in a year. He'll only be visiting me, but NOT staying/ living with me per se.
Tax Professional: Robin D., Senior Tax Advisor 4 replied 1 year ago

If you are married and your spouse stays with you in that specific residence then they will be seen as residing with you, even if just for a part time basis.

I am getting the "call me" button, but I can't speak over the phone now. I'm still not sure if your answer. I sometimes have friends and/or family "staying" over my apartment. You don't seriously think that they all have to be listed and are part of my "income."
Tax Professional: Robin D., Senior Tax Advisor 4 replied 1 year ago

Ignore that call offer.

Friends and family that come for a visit is different then a spouse.

Tax Professional: Robin D., Senior Tax Advisor 4 replied 1 year ago

I don't seriously think that they all have to be listed and are part of your "income."

Even having a roommate does not include their income but any amount a roommate paid for their share counts as part of your income for SCRIE.

Even if the spouse visits briefly over the year? (I can't text much longer as I'm staying at a friend's house and have get off my devices. Can we plan on speaking another time or should we cancel this just answer and not get charged?
Tax Professional: Robin D., Senior Tax Advisor 4 replied 1 year ago

Your spouse living with you even temporarily would be included.
