Hello terrie,

 

As long as your daughter does not have income of her own of more than $3,650 for the year and you provide more than half of her support, then you may claim her as a dependent. Her SS benefits are not included in the $3,650 calculation.

 

If this was helpful please press the Accept button. Positive feedback is also appreciated.

 

Thank you terrie
