My son is autistic and receives SSI. His biological father and I are divorced and I will be remarrying in September of 2011. At a redetermining appointment at SSI, I was told that I had to notify them as soon as I remarried because my new husband's income would then be counted into what my son gets in SSI. My question is why would his income be counted?
Call your local social security office and ask. It probably has to do with the amount of total income your family will have. I would assume the child support you receive is counted too.
Because it is considered household income. It may not change the amount but they still need to know.
It's a common-sense question: if your son will be living with you and your new husband, and your new husband's income will be helping to support the family, then it's considered support- and depending on the amount, your son's payments may be higher or lower than what you are used to, or it might not change at all.
