Can my disabled child receiving Social Security qualify as an EIC dependent?

You can claim this child -- regardless of age -- if all of these are true:

  • The child must have the same main home as you for more than half of the year.
  • Each qualifying child can't be claimed by more than one person claiming the Earned Income Credit (EIC).
  • You can't be a qualifying child of another person.

The IRS requires a physician's statement to prove a child's disability. You don't need to file the statement with your return. However, you should keep the statement as part of your records.
