Postby Jarman » Wed Sep 20, 2017 7:38 pm

My husband and I would like to know if he should die, Do I get his SSI and my disability. He is 85 on SSI and I am 53 on disability. We have been married of 20 years. I get like $9 dollars more than my husband. I need to plan ahead in life, and I can not work.

SSI is welfare.

No, you cannot get his welfare when he dies.

You can file to have your welfare increased, current SSI payment for a single person is $710 a month, so that is what you can expect to recieive.

Plus all of the other welfarfe benefits, food stamps. medicaid, free medicare at age 65, energy assistance, possibly other programs as well.

Some of these folks do not realize that if he had life insurance, and you inherited money, that might end your SSI.

People like you don't want life insurance to interfer with your welfare.

SSI ? Supplemental security Income ? not social security -for people who didn't work ?

$50 Billion a year.

(see page 62 of the report) http://www.ssa.gov/oact/ssir/SSI11/ssi20...

See SSI for your county and state: http://www.ssa.gov/policy/docs/statcomps...

2.6% of the population is on SSI, one of every 38 individuals, most never worked a day, the remainder worked so little, their Social Security is less than $678 per month. http://www.statehealthfacts.org/comparem...

Why don't you ask the folks at the social security office? They can even tell you what you would need for your taxes.

Yes, you can. http://ssa-custhelp.ssa.gov/app/answers/...

Ensure you and your husband have both wills and Power of Attorney over each other.
