It's possible, but I think you would be better off working and claiming yourself or you will have zip zero nothing for yourself when it comes time to collect your own SS payments. Set up a care contract with a lawyer so your parents can pay you something.

Depends on circumstances. Like how long has the person lived with their parents, support issues, are parents on medicaid, are you a student, disabled, etc. Need more information.

The only way your parent can claim you as a Dependent is if they are paying more than half of your care. Check with the IRS or a Tax Accountant for more information.
