Does Getting Married Or Having Children Affect My Benefits?
No, getting married or having children is unlikely to affect your SSDI benefits. Both events can potentially affect SSI benefits, but will not affect SSDI benefits in most cases.
What Would Cause My SSDI Benefits To Stop?
Simply put, the two most common reasons for someone’s SSDI benefits to stop is that they:
- Start working, or
- Go to jail.
If either of those things happen, SSDI payments will likely be reduced or cut off entirely.
Another frequent cause of SSDI benefits stopping is that there is some informational hold-up. Sometimes, the agency handling SSDI needs information from you that they do not yet have. In some cases, this happens when something about your life changes, like if you move and they don’t have your new address. In other cases, nothing has changed but the SSDI office has gotten confused.
In both of those cases, all you need to do is to give the SSDI office the information they need (and in some cases, the information they already have but do not realize that they have). If you want your SSDI benefits to continue, it is very important that you get the information to the SSDI office.
This sort of thing does not even require a lawyer. It simply requires following up and making sure they get the information they need. Sometimes the SSDI office will have trouble contacting you and cut you off based on that alone. They may decide that because they can’t contact you, you must not be there to receive the checks, and therefore they do not need to send them anymore. The fix for this sort of situation is to make sure the SSDI office has all of your up-to-date information, and to check with them for a reason if your SSDI checks suddenly stop arriving.
