    To be his dependent he has to provide OVER half of the funds to care for you. So, housing? Food? Clothing? Does he pay over half of that? Lets say you get $600 from Social Security for disability. He will have to provide MORE than that before he can claim you as a dependent. The easiest way for the military to make sure they are not being ripped off is to ask to see HIS last tax return. If you are not on it then obviously you are not a dependent of his as he is not claiming you as a dependent.

    Only if you .live with him and he pays for your living and he claims you as a dependent

    nope, not unless you have actually been his dependent for several years

    that means he has been paying for your housing, for your food and for your medical and can prove it

    no.   only parents may be considered as secondary dependents.  

    and even then it takes over 2 years to do and is usually denied at least once first.  besides,  secondary dependents do not receive much in the way of benefits.. they do NOT get Tricare for instance.   all they really get out of the deal is  eligibility to reside ion MFH with the sponsor and to be included in PCS orders

    Are you dependent upon him for your living expenses, and can he prove it?

    Not unless you are a minor and has custody of you through the courts or as an adult who cannot take care of yourself and is appointed your guardian. Then they will have issues if not married. That process can take years to go through and may be denied as usually it is only siblings and parents eligible for becoming dependents

    I believe you would need a court order making you his dependent.

    Yes - what has your disability got to do with it?
