No you do not need to report his SSI on your tax return. That is not taxable to you.
That amount is not reported anywhere but you would need to make sure that the SSI he receives is less then the support you provide when checking the ability to claim him as a dependent.
I can give you a worksheet that will make that easier
His SSI is not taxable (to you or him) but you use it to make sure you provide more support. DO not send the worksheet with your return either just keep it.
