No.   You never claim a spouse as a dependent.  File  a joint return

 

 When you file a joint return, you and your spouse will get the married filing jointly standard deduction of $24,800 (+$1300 for each spouse 65 or older)

And you will need to enter his SSDI or SSA-1099 into your Joint tax return.
