You are asking how to get out of something and I don't know what you are "in to."

If an argument can be made, by SSA, that you are working in your wife's business, this is something that requires prompt attention.  I would suggest contacting a C.P.A. concerning procedures to request that the 1099 be re-issued, or how the income can or should be reported on a tax return, preferably under your wife's business.

Because a 1099 was issued does not mean that you worked.  However, you are smart to ask now, and I would recommend contacting a local attorney in the Social Security Disability area and have them help you report, as soon as possible, what happened.  You have a duty to report to SSA if you work, and far better for you to have something in writing explaining the "appearance" that you worked than being in a position to explain what happened when SSA asks.

No attorney-client relationship has been established because of the information provided. Seek local counsel to address your particular facts. MJHJ

Social Security Disability
If you're suffering from a disability that prevents you from working, you may be entitled to benefits under Social Security disability insurance (SSD or SSDI). Social Security disability attorneys can work with you to file your application for benefits. Because the Social Security Administration routinely denies the majority of initial claims, your SSD lawyers can also prepare for your hearing before an administrative law judge, attend all hearings, advocate on your behalf and file an appeal if your application has been denied. Hire an SSDI law firm as soon as you need to apply for SSDI. The faster your application is approved, the more quickly you will begin to receive benefits.
