if you are being claimed as a dependent then you are not eligible for the stimulus payment.

Do you work? If you made $4,200 or more your boyfriend is not able to claim Head of Household in this manner. 

In which case, you should file single with two dependents.

You will get the $2,200 stimulus if your kids are under age 17.

 

He will get the $1,200 filing Single status.

 

even if you made less than $4,200, filing this way may be better.
