Divorce and Remarriage

questions & answers

Question: If I am on ssi will I be able to remarry or will I lose all of my benefits?

Answer: Supplemental Security Income (SSI) is based on your income and on your living arrangement. By remarrying, your living arrangement will change, thus will have an effect on the SSI benefits that you receive. However, the effect is limited to up to a 1/3 reduction, not a complete loss of benefits.
