Can someone legally blind be considered a dependent?
Posted by cremom on 8/26/2005 at 1:27 PM
My mother is 85 yrs. old, widowed, and legally blind (MD). My employer allows for "sick time" to be taken for doctors/dentists appointments for self, spouse or dependents. Since she is unable to drive and requires me to provide transportation, is there anyway I could have her deemed as my "dependent," being that she is medically dependent upon me? Appreciate any advice.

What criteria does your employer use for determining who's a dependent?
I think you may find your answer in The Family and Medical Leave Act http://www.dol.gov/esa/regs/statutes/whd/fmla.htm
Hope this helps.

Check with your local tax preparer.
