SSI is not typically taxable income so it does not figure into the maximum wages allowed to claim a person as a dependent.
Claiming someone as a dependent will not affect that amount of SSI that they receive.
Let me know if you still have questions.
SSI income is not typically determined by the amount of your bills. It is, instead, a percentage that is based on estimated calculations.
Claiming the person as a dependent should not change his income.
