So, with that stated, can I include him (and his income) on my return this year

My apologies if you're already aware of this, but I'm surprised to find that many parents aren't. Although your son's SS benefits are paid to a parent as trustee, the 1099-SSA shows your son's SSN, and these benefits are not included on the parents' return.
