#1;If you have an eligible dependent whose only source of support is through the ssdi program, or SSD, you may be able to claim him as a dependent on your income tax return. You need to meet the requirements to claim the individual as a your dependent. if your sister /the child’s fatherdoesn’t agree, you can’t claim the child on your return.




#2; If you're the custodian of the child who receives dependent benefits from the SSA such as disability payments, the child's benefits are paid to your name. Although the relationship and dependency status may confuse the tax situation, in many cases, neither you nor the dependent will owe taxes on the benefits; When you receive a payment for a dependent in your care from the SSA, the administration technically makes those payments to the beneficiary, not you. Because of this, custodians never owe taxes on these payments, and it shouldn't be reported as income on your Form 1040. The dependent may owe taxes on his benefits, but as a general rule, any beneficiary whose only income is from Social Security benefits -- such as children without a job -- benefits aren't taxable, and he doesn't need to file a tax return
