If these benefits are SSI disability benefits, then assets, resources and income can affect one's disability payments if the disabled person marries.  If your girlfriend's benefits are not from SSI (Supplemental Security Income), marriage should have no impact.  She should call her local hearing office to determine which program pays her.  If it's both, she could lose the SSI depending on the household assets, resources and income, partially or completely.  Follow this link to get the phone number and location for her SSA office https://secure.ssa.gov/apps6z/FOLO/fo001.jsp

Social Security
Social Security is a federal government program, primarily funded through payroll taxes, that provides an array of benefits to retired workers, the survivors of workers, the disabled and low-income families. Social Security attorneys typically work with one of two groups of clients. Many Social Security lawyers focus their practices on working with those whose applications for Social Security Disability Insurance (SSD or SSDI) have been denied. These attorneys assist clients at eligibility hearings and throughout the appeals process. Other Social Security law firms represent those who have been accused of Social Security fraud and those who are victims of Social Security fraud.
