Can I claim my child and get earned income credit using only the money I received from my trust fund?

I am distributed money my trust fund makes every month and it grows

Hi Aimee,

Yes, you can claim your child as a dependent, however, you will not be able to claim the EIC as that is only credited towards earning earned for work. Not investment distributions of any kind. Good luck!
