Spousal Benefits
I'm not sure what your specific question is, but in some cases there are spousal benefits available for those married to someone receiving SSDI. To qualify for spousal benefits, you must be 62 or older or must be caring for a child under the age of 16. If you provide more information about your specific circumstances, I may be able to help you further. Best of luck.

If husband can't work and the wife has never worked he's receiving SSDI and she is diabetic has heart problems and really isn't able to work, can't she qualify for the medical part?

Spousal Benefits

Susie,

To learn about what types of spousal benefits are available, see this information from the SSA.

Unfortunately, it doesn't seem as if the wife in your situation will be able to receive spousal benefits unless she is 62 or older or is caring for a child under the age of 16.

If it turns out that the wife does not qualify, she may be able to qualify for SSI under her own name. SSI is a needs-based program, meaning that applicants must not exceed the set limit for household income or resources.

I suggest you contact your local SSA office or a disability attorney to find out what options are available.

Best of luck.

My husband is on disability and I have been working. Now he has begun to have seizures and I dont think he should be alone. If I quit working and stay home with him could I receive a check to suppliment our income

Monique, you will be eligible to receive disability payments if you are over the age of 62 and are not eligible to receive a higher disability payment on your own record. Or, you will be eligible for spousal benefits if you are caring for his child who is disabled and/or under the age of 16. Best of luck!

I receive SSA, had a work injury to my lower back. Had to have surgery sciatica,L4 and L5. Won my case against Workman Comp. Since I am 64yrs of age can I get SSADI now before 65?

Johnny, I'm not sure what you
Johnny, I'm not sure what you are asking. What do you mean by SSA and SSADI? The two types of disability benefits are SSI and SSDI. I can probably help answer your question once I know what you mean.

Disability overpayment
My husband is paying a large overpayment from the onset of his disability claim. He still receives a monthly check that is lower due to the overpayment. He has since been diagnosed with terminal cancer. Will I, his wife, be responsible for the remainder of his overpayment if he passes away?

Overpayment
I'm sorry to hear about your husband's health. You can find the information about overpayment on the following page from the SSA's website: Liability for Repayment. Please let me know if you have any other questions.
