Adult Disabled Child having kids

I am an adult disabled child and have been on disability for 4 years now. I was engaged but found out I would lose all my benefits if I married. My fiance and I chose to have a commitment ceremony instead of losing my income and insurance. He could not afford to support us on his income alone. Now we are discussing trying to have children. Am I allowed to have a child and still qualify for my social security benefits? I am aware with my condition it would be a high risk pregnancy but we still would like to try. It seems unfair that they would be able to prevent me from marrying and having children because of my disability.

Hi There,

Hi There,

Your benefits may not be taken away all together. Your child may be able to qualify for auxiliary benefits off of your benefits.
