Eligibility for SSI?

My son gets SSI and my husband has a daughter who is here 50% of the time in the summer. I was wondering if I can claim her in our home for those summer months with my son's SSI. We do not get the full amount and it would be helpful as we do still pay child support. I was wondering if they would allow me to claim her those summer months? I think they said she had to be in the home 50% of the time, but I don't know if they go off monthly or yearly, because yearly she isn't, but monthly in summer she is. Thanks.

I'm not sure anyone can help you but maybe if your question was a little clearer we might make better suggestions.
Who are you wishing to make your claim to? The other parent that you are paying support? IRS?

I cannot see where Social Security would have anything to do with this unless I am reading your question incorrectly.
Can you give a better explanation? Most of the time when it is stated as 50% (IRS) it means over 6 months of the year but with child support you can get a court order to reduce your support payments for whatever time she spends with you and also, if the time factor is enough, you can ask for an agreement with IRS to let you claim her for 1/10, 1/5 or whatever time it works out to.

From what I understand, Social Security needs to be contacted directly. I would bring cashed checks to show how much you support the child and receipts that support what it is costing you to feed/clothe her during the summer.

You would need to contact SSI on that one.

I have reread your question and I still do not understand what you are asking - what does your husband's daughter have to do with your son's SSI? I assume your son lives with you but SSI is for the one individual unless he has a family of his own.
