What is the name of your state (only U.S. law)? Connecticut
Hello, I've tried searching the internet and have yet to find relevant/updated information so I thought I would find a place to ask my specific question.
I receive SSI, Medicaid, and Food Stamp benefits. My fiance (of 6 years) and I finally want to get married, but we are worried I may lose my benefits if we do. I can't find any information on how much he can make before I lose/get reduced benefits. As of right now he makes VERY little, I actually get more than him from SSI than he does in his monthly check (About $500, sometimes less.)
So will I lose my SSI? I'm aware I may lose my some/all foodstamps, and possibly Medicaid. But here is another thing, up until now I have been living with my grandparents, barely paying out much for 'rent'. My fiance and I just got our own place so now I will be paying MUCH more out of my income towards new bills, rent, etc. I'm wondering if these new payments will offset how much I could lose? Any info is appreciated, thank you for reading my post.
