My disabled grandson lives...

My disabled grandson lives with me full time and I am basically his caregiver. He does receive $587 per month SSDI. Can I still claim him as a dependent since I do not get reimbursed for any household expenses from him?

Accountant's Assistant: The Accountant will know how to help. Is there anything else important you think the Accountant should know?

My daughter, his mother, is also disabled and receives only social security disability income. The money they both receive is used for some of their personal expenses. I am not reimbursed for any expenses I pay for the home and food.

Hey! I'm Carter, I'm a CPA and can help you out with this.

As long as he's under the age of 19, then you can claim him as a dependent. The income test does not kick in unless they are age 19 or older (or 24 if they went to college).

Let me know if you need anything else. If not, please leave a rating. Thanks!
