We have always filed a joint return

Hi Anonymous, Good question, and it suggests that your being on SSD has an impact on your husband's decision to claim you as a dependent. This is less a social security question and more a question for a tax professional. I'd recommend you direct your question to your tax preparer or a tax professional and share your complete financial picture. I think this will provide you with the best answer(s) to you question.

Hope my response was helpful.
Thanks,

As Darius suggested, discuss your situation in detail with your tax advisor
Generally, married filing jointly will give you a larger refund or fewer taxes due.
