    How will moving in together affect my boyfriend's SSI/SSDI?

    We live in Massachusetts and are moving in together. I have 3 children that I solely support. (I receive no child support but do have a court order for it) My oldest is severely autistic and does not qualify for SSI/SSDI because I earn too much money. Will he lose his benefits if we live together? Should he just "rent" a room from me instead? I can not afford to support him as well as my children.

    His SSDI will be secure ,

    His SSI would most likely be reduced some if living with others.

    Do not represent or go around as if you were a couple or married .

    He would represent that he buys and prepares his own meals .

    Yes,you could rent a room instead avoiding the pitfalls.

    Which room is he going to rent? A separate one from you and just visit your room once in awhile??? I think if you represent that he rents a room from you that both of you would be making false statements. Room rental denotes a business arrangement, not a boyfriend/girlfriend relationship.

    He could also contribute his share of your household expenses since you and he and the children are all roommates. That sounds more honest.
