    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.

    Then don't let him move in.
