  1. I was hit by a car and am now permanently disabled. I am on SSDI. When I become retirement age, will I need to apply for SSI too? Will I lose my SSDI? Will I be receiving both? I worked for several decades.

  2. Social Security’s Acting Commissioner, Carolyn W. Colvin, likes to tell this amusing story. A colleague’s teenage daughter came home bursting with excitement after receiving her first paycheck. But she had one question about her earnings statement.
    “Well, Dad” — she asked him earnestly — “who is this FICA?”
    WELL, THANK GOD SHE CAN WORK and she was not born an ADULT DISABLED CHILD who is physically disabled! If she was born an “adult disabled child”, then she COULD NOT MARRY any abled bodied person that she wanted to= OR SHE WOULD LOOSE ALL HER BENEFITS!!!

    How fair, understanding and compassionate does that sound? Answer = IT DOES NOT!

    Who cares if her physically disabled daughter (who is free to make decisions on her own) decides to marry an able bodied person, it’s her business to do so, right?
    ANSWER= WRONG!

    It is just another form of DISCRIMINATION that is being allowed to operate openly under the SOCIALIST SECURITY SYSTEM!

    The Socialist Security system can’t even fix an outdated “RULE” that they use to justify discrimination against physically disabled people.

    If you are a physically disabled person (an adult disabled child) and you happen to marry an “able bodied person” you will be loosing out on a lifetime of benefits, all because of a one word “rule” that prohibits you from marrying an “able bodied person”. Best of all, they never tell you about their “Rule” so that they can justify cutting off any benefits that you may be due.

    Because you are physically disabled (adult disabled child) and you choose not to marry another adult disabled child or disabled person drawing off socialist security, you WILL LOOSE ANY AND ALL BENEFITS FOR LIFE. This means that the SOCIALIST SECURITY system is TELLING YOU WHO YOU ARE ALLOWED TO MARRY and who you are
    NOT ALLOWED TO MARRY! It is a discriminatory act “rule” and should be ILLEGAL!

    Even though I am permanently and totally disabled, if I marry an “able bodied person”, somehow that marriage makes everything ok and I am no longer considered disabled (in the eyes of the socialist security system). Magically (because I married an able bodied person), the pixie fairies come down and cure my disability, because now I can just go out and find gainful employment, no one will discriminate against my physical disability and everything will be grand, right? Somehow magically, marrying an able bodied person makes my physical disablility dissappear and now I am cured, right? WRONG!

    The issue is a special “Rule” that the Socialist Security System uses to discriminate against “certain” people. If you are a “physically disabled person” (AKA-certain people) and happen to marry an able bodied person, then the SOCIALIST SECURITY system will use special “Rules” to legally discriminate against you and deny you benefits, even if you appeal online.

    The SOCIALIST SECURITY system has caused me a lot of economic hardship all because I married an able bodied person. The SOCIALIST SECURITY system thinks someone who is physically disabled (permanently and totally disabled) marries an “able bodied person”, that somehow magically they are cured of their physical disability and two people can survive off the able bodied persons income. WOW, talk about a bunch of bureaucratic idiotic thinking, that somehow this would not cause a financial hardship….. amazing.

    The rules that the Social Security Administration uses to legally discriminate against persons who are “Adult Disabled Children” who happen to marry an able bodied person, are discriminatory. This is loosely referred to as the “marriage penalty” but I call it exactly what it is, a legal form of discrimination.
    I firmly believe this rule, is an act of bias, prejudice and discrimination against people who (by no fault of their own) are born disabled and happen to marry an able bodied person

    Please write your Congressional Representative and tell them to end this modern day form of Legal Discrimination. In this day of fairness and equality, there are still some people suffering from an outdated and oppressive bureaucratic rule.

    (PS. notice how the only thing any of these SOCIALIST SECURITY workers ever say are quotes of the rules or processes, like a worker drone. They are unable to address any topics that fall outside of their rule books). Typical bureaucracy and bureaucratic responses, like trying to argue over lost change with a vending machine!

  3. I am working part time & retired . no deductions in my pay check. Will I receive an increase in my SSS monthly benefit after I file my income tax which includes my annual income from my part time job?

  4. I was recommended this web site by way of my cousin. I’m no
    longer sure whether or not this put up is written through him as nobody else realize such detailed about my problem.
    You are amazing! Thank you!

  5. I will be 61 in May, I get SSI now,346. A month,so when am I eligible to apply,as I want to start it at 62. Will this be ok??.Thank you and enjoy day.

    • Thank you for contacting us, Michael. Please keep in mind that the Supplemental Security Income (SSI) is a needs-based program that pays benefits to disabled individuals based on financial need. If you’re receiving benefits under the SSI program now, but you’re also insured and qualify for retirement benefit on your own record, you are required to apply for those benefits at age 62.
      We hope this information helps.
