I just want to know if I am eligible for an SSG if I am living with someone who is claiming housing benefit? It says that you can claim SSG if you are eligible for housing benefit? Does that mean I am eligible because I don't really pay Housing Benefit but the person I am living with does?

You'd have to check with student finance. But it's usually aimed at people with children or those with disabilities and not just because your partner receives some form of benefit.
If you're starting in September 2016, there's no SSG.
