    Unhappy Social Security Disability Benefits And Household Income

    Hi, my mother and father have been married for about 25 years. My dad has been a truck driver for most of those years. Over the years my moms health has only got worse and worse. She applied for benefits. Apparently she qualifies with her health but they told her that my dad makes too much for her to receive anything. That they would have to divorce to get anything.

    Is there any way to fight this because it just doesn't seem fair. She wants to work but she just can't.

    Default Re: Social Security Marriage Mother/father

    When deciding if a person qualifies for disability benefits financially (I assume she applied for SSI due to a disability), they consider both spouse's income for a SSI request even if only one spouse is applying. Sorry, that's the way it is set up.
