The reporter got some facts wrong. The benefits are SSI, not Social Security. However, before the Windsor decision, SSI would only deem from one parent; now, depending upon the domicile, if the marriage is legal, there may be deeming from two parents instead. There is no mention of how much income these two moms have. And the SSI system is still not automated to accept same sex marriage, so even if they were under the income limit, the computation will be painstakingly manual.
