Something I need to know

6 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I’m currently dating (able it internet mostly) and intend to marry a US citizen.

Now she suffers from a form of Epilepsy that has made her unable to work but she has been getting support from the state in the form of benefits, this was mainly down to her dad working.

Now after some checking they (the benefits office) have informed her that if she was to get married (to either a US or non-US citizen) she would lose her current benefits and I would have to earn enough (equivalent to two people on standard pay) to cover what she would lose from the state (other than the very basic disability she would be entitled to)

Now I just need to know:

1: Is this true?

2: Dose it depend on the state they reside in? (They live in Indiana)

3: What would I need to do to make sure she still gets her entitlement even though she would be married.

How old is the woman ? As a single she may be a dependant to her father, if married she would no longer qualify and you ( she) would be on their own.

She is 29 same as me. She was a dependant to her father, how has sadly passed away.

So your saying that if we where to get married she would lose everything?
