Individuals who are receiving Social Security disability insurance (SSDI) benefits should understand the payments they receive could be affected once they decide to change their marital status. Below are the things that could happen to disability benefits when a person changes his or her marital status:

  • SSDI beneficiaries who got their payments from their spouse can no longer receive benefits if they got divorced before reaching 62 years of age.
  • Individuals who have been receiving SSDI benefits from their deceased spouse may have their benefits stopped if they remarry before reaching 50 years of age.
  • Individuals who are receiving other kinds of benefits could stop receiving those benefits if they get married.

Those who have changed their marital status could continue receiving benefits upon divorcing a spouse if they are over 62.
