My 2 adult children are both disabled and receive SSI. I manage their money and have to take an amount out for support as per the rules from Social Security. they receive their medical and the small check every month but live with me. I know I pay out more than they give me to support them but never actually figured out how much the difference was. can I still claim them as dependents. I am absolutely sure their expenses are higher than I get.

From what you posted you can claim them.

An adult SSI recipient who receives the combined federal and state benefits at the

Household of Another level ($570.00 for 2022; $618.67 for 2023) may be claimed as a

dependent by a person who can show that they provided more than half the SSI recipient’s

support.  For support, think about housing, utilities, food, and other necessities. 

In figuring total support, the SSI income must be counted. If the yearly total of SSI

received is less than the amount of support provided by a parent or another person, the SSI

recipient may be claimed as a dependent if all other dependency requirements are met.

These are the other requirements:

 

Qualifying child

  • They are related to you.
  • They are not claimed as a dependent by anyone else
  • They're a U.S. citizen, resident alien, national, or a Canadian or Mexican resident
  • They aren’t filing a joint return with their spouse
  • They're under the age of 19 (or 24 for full-time students).
    • No age limit for permanently and totally disabled children
  • They lived with you for more than half the year (exceptions apply).
  • They didn't provide more than half of their own support for the year
