Will My Benefits Change If I Get Married?

To qualify for Social Security disability benefits, you must have an injury or condition that prevents you from holding any form of employment, and you must also have a work history of paying taxes to the Social Security Administration (SSA). Therefore, if you are claiming benefits under your own work history, then getting married should not affect your disability benefits.

However, if you are receiving benefits from another person, marriage could affect those payments. If you are receiving benefits from an ex-spouse, remarriage to another person will cause those benefits to cease. Additionally, if you are an adult disabled son or daughter receiving parental benefits, getting married will end those benefits as well. The stipulations of who can receive benefits and when can seem complicated, but working with a qualified attorney can put your mind at ease about your benefits and future plans.

For people with an injury or condition that prevents them from working, disability benefits can be essential to making ends meet each month. Before making serious life decisions that could impact you and your family financially, speak with a Tulsa Social Security Disability lawyer to make the best decisions for you and your future. We offer free evaluations of your case and can also be reached by phone at (918) 265-1404.


    I didn't think there was a caring professional considerate attorney firm on the planet, but Troutman & Troutman proved me wrong. From the receptionist to the legal assistance to the attorney and more they were exceptional people.

    They did a fantastic job getting everything gathered up and getting the trial done as quickly as possible. Anytime I had a question they were patient and help me understand what was going on. Especially Christy and Charlie were great.

    Steve Troutman was able to get my short-term and long-term disability for me. Then Erin another lawyer for their firm got my Social security disability for me. Great people.

    Mr. Troutman walked me through the entire process. Heather was available each time I called, answered all my crazy questions, and helped me fill out forms along the way. I was never treated like I was wasting time.
