Can You Claim Someone 21 Or Over Who Receives SSI Benifets?

You may be able to claim someone as a Qualifying Relative dependent if:

  • You provided more than half of his support in 2016
  • He earned less than $4,050 in gross taxable income. (Social Security income generally doesn’t count here.)
  •  He lives with you 365 days in the year or is related to you.
  •  He isn’t a dependent on someone else’s tax return.
  • He isn’t filing a tax return with a spouse (married filing jointly).
  • He  is a U.S. citizen, resident alien, national, or a Canadian or Mexican resident

You can’t claim a dependent if you are a dependent on someone else’s taxes

 Earned less than $4,050 in gross taxable income. (Social Security income generally doesn’t count here.)

^^ Does this mean that their Social Security Income doesn't apply to the 'gross taxable income'? the $4,050 would only count if my dependent works and earns less than that?
